Resources for Early Childhood Professionals Working with Families and Very Young Children.
Summer, Gail L., Ed.
This collection of resources was compiled by the Birth to Kindergarten students of Lenoir-Rhyne College (North Carolina) to provide the early childhood professional--whether a child care center director, early interventionist, teacher, family resource counselor, or program consultant--with ready, easy to use information to share with parents. There are three groups of resources included. "Children Talking to Parents about Development" is a series of newsletter-type reproducibles covering each age of the developmental span from birth to five. The series also includes topics of special interest to parents such as toilet training, discipline, getting along with siblings, and developmental disorders and autism. "Children Talking to Parents about Language" is a series of similar reproducibles focusing on how parents can support the development of language in the infant through kindergartner. "Learning about Literacy" continues the language series, but is written directly to parents with a focus on reading, writing, and using the computer with young children. The literacy resources were designed so that parents could become better consumers of both print and technology for their young child. (JPB)
