Literacies in Childhood supports the development of competent and confident Early Childhood and Primary Educators. Building on the success of the first edition, this new edition reaffirms a 'literacy as social practice' philosophy, alongside a balanced discussion of phonics, and the principles of emergent literacy. The underpinning concept of 'multiliteracies' provides a consistent them throughout. Divided into parts that uphold a clear and cohesive framework, the text covers literacy learning in all stages of early childhood from infants and toddlers, to preschoolers and the early primary school years. As with the first edition, all chapters are written by academics with specific expertise, and address topical issues such as the intersections between language, ethnicity, 'race', gender, ability and class; partnerships between educators, families and communities; and visual, technological and commercial factors in young children's literacy learning. -- back cover
