Your Child Learns To Read & Write.
Fields, Marjorie V.
Organized into five sections, this book discusses how children learn to read and write and provides suggestions for parents on how they can nurture children's growth in these areas. Section 1, "How Children Learn To Read and Write," explains general principles that apply to all early age groups. This section discusses how oral and written language interrelate by comparing a child's progress in learning to talk with progress in learning how to write. The section gives examples of how children learn to read and write from experiencing print-rich environments and being part of a literate society. Guidelines for assisting a child's general-knowledge base and intellectual development are included. The remaining sections of the book discuss age-specific aspects of learning to read and write. These sections are: (2) "Your Infant Starts on the Road to Literacy"; (3) "Your Toddler Becomes Aware of Reading and Writing"; (4) "Your Preschooler Gains Understanding of Print"; and (5) "Your Primary-Grader Begins To Read and Write."
