Summary "The Development of Language and Literacy is essential reading for all those who work and play with young children and who share in the emergence of their language and literacy." "Accessible and jargon-free, the book begins with an explanation of how language evolves in very young children, leading to the development of literacy in early childhood and school environments. It then moves on to explore the achievements and challenges of young bilinguals, and Marian Whitehead provides practical strategies for parents and carers to work in partnership to promote children's development. Photographs of children in early years settings and original examples of children's work illustrate the text, and a glossary of linguistic terms is included to support those new to language study."--BOOK JACKET
