"Marian Whitehead's re-focused priorities of babies as powerful thinkers, the significance of non-verbal communication, the importance of language play, the roots of emergent literacy and the notion of language and education as shared community endeavours make her book the one to choose for today's world." Early Years Update Radically rewritten and updated in light of new research and developments, the new edition of this important book gives clear guidance to early years practitioners on how to support young children's language and literacy development. The book covers the age range 0-7 years and highlights the speed and complexity of this period of growth in children's thinking, communicative abilities, language, social and cultural awareness and physical skills. Child observations and case studies and photographs are used to demonstrate the learning that goes on in a variety of homes and early years settings.
