Early Childhood Experiences in Language Arts: Early Literacy, 8E is a tried and true text that encourages reflective thinking, allows practice of skills, and inspires the collection of ideas for future use. Now in it's eighth edition, the text offers many new features and benefits that will arm students with valuable information they can take directly into a teaching practice: the most current national legislative efforts, and attention to public concern and interest in young children's language and foundational literacy skills. It thoroughly addresses the interrelatedness of listening, speaking, reading, writing, and viewing language arts areas. A high-level view that paints a comprehensive picture of the most important, aspects of teaching early literacy is balanced by the books practical approach providing students with stories, poems, finger plays, and puppetry they can utilize in a classroom setting. They will also learn curriculum for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, with the theory followed up by deliberate "how-to" suggestions. Cultural diversity is addressed, as well as program planning ideas for English language learners and children with special needs. Rounding out this effective text are student activity sections that encourage student discussion and interaction, plus an Online Companion to encourage discussion, research, and study.

This is a text that I would feel comfortable using.
Three strengths: inclusion of pertinent information, so very little will need to be added by instructor; student activities at the end of chapters include words to stories, poems, rhymes and ideas for listening activities, puppetry and other resources for beginning teachers; students often like the bulleted format used in much of the text.
This text is complete and offers an excellent introduction to Language Arts learning. Strengths are the Â'parentÂ's role sectionsÂ' in most chapters and the emphasis on care givers sections
