Literacy Development in the Early Years, by renowned author Lesley Mandel Morrow,is an integrated approach to language arts that gives pre-service and in-service teachers a wealth of valuable information for making children active participants in the process of literacy development. The many ideas are presented through both theoretical and research-based rationales, plus extensive practical applications–teacher and child dialogues; vignettes; lessons; and model interactions between teachers, children, and parents. A comprehensive, balanced approach to literacy teaching and learning, the book provides a wealth of information on how children learn, coupled with the literacy skills and strategies teachers need to make it all happen.
