Learning to Read the World: Language and
Literacy in the First Three Years 

Edited by Sharon E. Rosenkoetter and Joanne Knapp-Philo
ISBN: 9780943657868
Item: 327-OLB

Infants and toddlers typically learn to read the world by getting support and encouragement from parents and caregivers—the cherished adults who are an essential part of their day-to-day routines and interactions. In this book, editors Sharon E. Rosenkoetter and Joanne Knapp-Philo draw on research from multiple fields to explore infant−toddler learning as it relates to beginning language and literacy. They approach this important topic from numerous vantage points: scholarship, parenting, culture, leadership, policy, direct service, training, and community development.

By including a multidisciplinary array of authors—who approach this topic from a variety of perspectives—Rosenkoetter and Knapp-Philo provide a broad understanding of how very young children move toward literacy and suggest ways that readers can encourage young children to delight in words, shapes, sounds, symbols, concepts, and other facets of language and literacy development.
