New Family Literacy Handbook Integrates Overlapping Fields. FPG Snapshot #18
FPG Child Development Institute, University of North Carolina
This "snapshot" presents a review of a new family literacy handbook. Edited by Dr. Barbara Wasik of the FPG Child Development Institute, "The Handbook of Family Literacy" provides scholars, students, policymakers and practitioners (both inside and outside the field) with a valuable snapshot of its current boundaries and rapidly growing content. With contributions from experts in each of its component fields, the 704-page handbook provides an up-to-date picture of existing family literacy programs, of the research and theories that guide these programs, of current issues, and of likely future directions. The book is aimed at professionals (directors and staff) and graduate students in family literacy, early childhood education, child development, parenting, and adult education, as well as researchers and policymakers in child development and family literacy.
