Editorial Reviews

This text is a very good introduction to an early childhood classroom for pre-service teachers. The ideas help the reader visualize the layout of a print-rich classroom that allows young children to develop oral and written skills. I can rely on the strengths of this book to build a strong foundation for future teachers of young children. -- Elizabeth J. Lovoy, University of Central Florida   I use this textbook now and see no reason to change. This is a practical textbook that helps new and prospective teachers use effective literacy skills in their classrooms. Each chapter has many ideas that students can use immediately.   One of its outstanding strengths is its many suggestions of multicultural books and how they can be used effectively. The detailed examples of how multicultural materials can be incorporated into various centers in the classroom is helpful to new or prospective teachers as they think about setting up their own classrooms. -- Janet Luch, Touro College
