“What do early childhood educators really need to know, do, and understand in order to work effectively and compassionately with the very young?” This is the focus of Mary Renck Jalongo’s approach to this new edition of her widely popular Early Childhood Language Arts. In it she helps teachers become well informed about young children’s language development, strategies to use to support language growth, and the essential elements for a novice teacher to mature into a master teacher. Distinctive from many other early literacy books in that it includes oral language rather than concentrating on literacy in print, the approach is to integrate language arts and other subject areas, including the fine arts.

"The Jalongo textbook is organized in a way that is very meaningful for the instructor as well as the student. The textbook covers the most up-to-date research and information about literacy and language development for young children. I love all the detail this book has to offer like the links with literature, ELLs, and strategies for the classroom teacher." - Traci Johnston, Pulaski Technical College
"This textbook is very student friendly and helps the students learn the key concepts of emerging literacy in terms they can understand and uses real-life scenarios so the students can understand them in context. It supports the collaboration of teachers and families. It provides the students with useful suggestions to implement into their own classroom. It recognizes the importance of research in the early childhood field and the changing classroom of more diverse students." - Jane Horner, Associate Professor , Ivy Tech Community College
