Edited by Sharon E. Rosenkoetter

$39.95 $27.97


The newborn is amazingly equipped to acquire language and literacy—these early years are the foundation upon which later learning is built.

Drawing on current research, the authors of Learning to Read the World, including J. Ronald Lally, former director of WestEd’s Program for Infant/Toddler Caregivers, examine the elements of beginning language and literacy and look at how families, programs, and communities can encourage beginning language and literacy in infants and toddlers.
