Language, Literacy and Early Childhood Education helps students to understand the nature of oral language, reading and writing, providing the essential knowledge needed to guide the language development and learning needs of young children. The book ensures that students have the theoretical framework before they enter the classroom but balances it with the practical knowledge required to tackle the subject with confidence. It looks in depth at the practical strategies and activities for each of the early childhood learning contexts and maintains an accessible approach by using illustrations, charts and tables to summarise key points.

"Language, Literacy and Early Childhood Education is a valuable text, of benefit to both pre-service teachers and to early childhood practitioners in under-five settings adn for educators in the first years of school. It is contemporary in its approach and very practical in it's orientation, while the ideas suggested for the support of young children's developing language and literacy competency are grounded in established theoretical perspectives and solid research. This book is an excellent resource and I applaud the authors for thier work."   Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2013
