Editorial Reviews

The text is well organized. The features such as profiles, figures, step-by-step boxes, and Teachers’ Notebook contribute excellent examples of topics and procedures and add to the richness of the text. –Mary Clare Courtland, Lakehead University I very much appreciate the efforts of the authors to produce a comprehensive text. They address emergent literacy, narrative and expository modes, examples and explanations, step by step processes, resources, application examples and assessment. There is a good balance of relevant, current theory and practice. –Jean Tonski, Vancouver Island University
