This important, research-based text explores the concept of literacy as social practice within diverse family, community and educational settings. Its theoretical premise that literacy learning and life chances are inextricably linked is underscored by practical example, teachers' stories and real-world vignettes. With close reference to the Early Years Learning Framework, this book acknowledges the multiplicity of 'literacy' experiences that manifest in the lives of young children from birth to eight. It provides clear guidelines and foundational principles for tertiary students, early childhood professionals and primary school teachers, as they work to support literacy learning and prepare children for future success.
