Learning to Read the World: Literacy in the First 3 Years
Rosenkoetter, Sharon E.; Knapp-Philo, Joanne
Zero to Three (J), v25 n1 p4-9 Sep 2004
The infant-toddler years are incredibly important in producing a nation of readers. Every family can, in culturally appropriate ways, help infants and toddlers learn to read the world. Every caregiver can, in culturally appropriate ways, help infants and toddlers grow in language and literacy. The authors argue that early childhood programs must intentionally and frequently support families and caregivers in helping infants and toddlers learn to read the world. Communities must encourage infants and toddlers and their families, caregivers, and early childhood programs in efforts to foster early language and literacy. (Note: This article is adapted from a book of the same title, co-edited by the authors and published by ZERO TO THREE in 2006, ERIC# ED493629.)
