"This wonderful collection of articles provides innovative ways to nurture language development from infancy through third grade. It includes real examples that demonstrate children's amazing capacities in oral and written language. These articles will inspire us to move beyond the traditional ways to enrich language to inventive practices that will challenge all children." -- Rebecca Isbell, Author, Consultant, and Professor Emerita, East Tennessee State University "Easy to use and fun to read, Spotlight on Young Children: Exploring Language and Literacy is a comprehensive resource that every early childhood educator should have. It covers all of the important aspects of language and literacy development, including diverse languages and abilities and ages, with lively articles that answer key questions for practitioners. NAEYC addresses the language and literacy connection, a critical component of early childhood education knowledge, and brings it to life with the fascinating experiences, perspectives, and expertise of the contributing authors." -- Karen N. Nemeth, Author and Founder of Language Castle LLC "This useful and thought-provoking collection will help educators understand and apply developmentally appropriate language and literacy practices for children from infancy to school age. The articles on dual language learners are particularly helpful, offering teachers a theoretical background together with practical applications." -- Susan Stacey, Author and Kindergarten Coordinator, Halifax Grammar School, Halifax, Nova Scotia "Early childhood teachers, be the change in your program's curriculum! The articles in this book offer numerous ways to promote early literacy skills and support young children's desire to read and write." -- Kathleen I.
