In Early Literacy in Preschool and Kindergarten: A Multicultural Perspective, 4/e, pre- and in-service early childhood teachers examine how literacy develops in young children and how teachers can encourage the natural emergence of reading and writing. Thoroughly updated to include the most recent research on young children’s literacy acquisition, this text focuses on multicultural children’s literature, including detailed descriptions of over 200 multicultural children’s books, and is packed with practical ideas and strategies for using music and art as natural languages, strengthening children’s writing muscles, and developing visual representational skills for reading through drawing. Helpful information is included about incorporating new technology that is appropriate for use in preschool programs.
