Early Childhood Language Arts, Fourth Edition, offers a more comprehensive look at early childhood literacy education integrating the language arts – listening, speaking, reading, and writing – than any other book on the market.
In response to the call for evidence-based reading instruction, the Fourth Edition includes 36 research-based teaching strategies, and every chapter incorporates information on brain research, bilingual education, technology, and the media’s influences on young children. Mary Renck Jalongo provides readers with a synthesis of the information on language arts gleaned from research on emergent literacy, early childhood education, and special education. She also underscores what is being emphasized in early childhood teacher accreditation programs; namely, responding to the increasingly diverse needs of young language learners in inclusive settings, working with parents and families, and collaborating with professionals in other fields.

“Today’s society is becoming increasingly diverse and future teachers must be prepared for the populations they will serve. However, it is not just the inclusion of these topics that ... [is a] strength of this text. The author approaches these topics with such a positive tone, particularly through the examples provided of specific children or families, that the reader could see working with these populations as a potential joy and positive aspect of teaching.”
–Rebecca Edmiaston, University of Northern Iowa
Now in its fourth edition, Early Childhood Language Arts offers a more comprehensive look at early childhood literacy education than any other text, integrating all aspects of language arts: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. In every chapter, renowned author Mary Jalongo presents research-based teaching strategies, emphasizes collaboration with families and professionals in other fields to support literacy growth, and underscores the importance of working effectively with diverse groups of language learners. Marginal notes throughout address four different aspects of language arts instruction: bilingual education, brain and language, infant and toddler research, and group investigation.
In response to the call for evidence-based reading instruction, the fourth edition equips early childhood educators with a repertoire of evidence-based approaches to instruction with research-based literacy strategies in every chapter. A total of thirty-nine strategies are discussed in terms of three adaptations: for English language learners, for children who are struggling with literacy, and for children with special needs, including gifted students.
Three new chapters provide greater depth and breadth of coverage on early literacy with print: Chapter 6 on expository and narrative texts, Chapter 7 on emergent reading, and Chapter 8 on early and independent reading.About the Author:
