About the eBook

Children flourish in their development and learning when practitioners and parents work together. Childrens′ development and learning are further enhanced when interconnected knowledge and understanding work together.

In this new edition the authors guide readers in understanding of child development. They highlight the need for those who work with young children to become reflective practitioners. Through a focus on the introduction of nursery rhymes, finger rhymes, action songs and poetry cards, the authors provide a gentle, child-friendly way to develop literacy 0-7.

Thoroughly revised and updated, this book includes:

- Case studies and examples

- Discussion of the primary framework

- Inclusion of schools as an educational setting

- Age-appropriate activities

- Further reading suggestions at the end of each chapter

This book is useful for teachers, practitioners, teaching assistants and childminders and for anyone working with children from birth to seven years in nursery and primary schools, children′s centres, foundation units, and at home.
