Infants and toddlers typically learn to read the world by getting support and encouragement from caregivers—the cherished adults who are an essential part of their day-to-day routines. This book draws on research from multiple fields to explore how infants and toddlers learn language and literacy. The topic is examined from many perspectives: scholarship, parenting, culture, leadership, policy, direct service, training, and community development. By including a multidisciplinary array of authors with different perspectives, Rosenkoetter and Knapp-Philo provide a comprehensive understanding of how very young children develop literacy, and they suggest ways to encourage young children to delight in words, shapes, sounds, symbols, concepts, and other facets of language and literacy development.
