Literacy Development in the Early Years is a comprehensive and balanced approach to early literacy instruction (birth to Grade 3) with a focus on integrating language arts. It explores both the science and art of teaching literacy, presenting a wealth of theory, research, practical strategies and perspectives about how children learn literacy skills. The text recognizes that literacy development is an active process between educators and students. Author Lesley Mandel Morrow utilizes her own research and experiences with the research of others to consider historical theories and philosophies about how children learn, policy changes in teaching reading, new laws and challenges in the area of testing and assessment, the place of diversity in today's classrooms, teaching English learners and more. 

Reorganized with shorter, easier-to-read chapters, the 9th Edition adds strategies for developing literacy in writing and reading workshops, independent and partner reading, organizational methods and comprehension development.
