Teachers read lots of books that help them open the wonderful world of language and literacy with young children, but this book is one teachers will want to keep and read again and again. After reading the first pages, I was excited and eager to use the many new strategies to enrich my interactions with young children.

Learning About Language and Literacy in Preschool is a wonderful gift for preschool teachers. The book is beautiful to look at with inviting color photographs that show children engaged in literacy. The chapters are short and written in such a friendly way that teachers can initiate activities after reading for just a few minutes. This is a must for preschool teachers.
