This important book is a thorough account of early communication covering bilingualism and specific areas of learning of reading and writing in early years. It is well laid out, informative and supportive with excellent case studies. It should be considered as an essential book for students studying early childhood related programmes, and professionals working with babies and young children.
I needed a book which focused in on this important area with the youngest children so as this spans the 0-5 age range this is perfect to support trainee teacher understanding of how they can support early communication and why they need to whilst they are on a placement in a nursery setting. Useful to support and inform about typical stages of development and the differing needs of these age ranges. Obviously this needs updating with reference to the revised EYFS
An inspiring and accessible book about developing and improving effective interactions and communications with young children. Pertinent as it focusses on younger children and will support practitioners and students developing their research practice in the area.
Contemporary, knowledgeable and accessible text for students and those working with young children. The content is pertinent and Ann Clare writes in a style that is fluid and makes sense of complex issues and initiatives. Clare discuss many of the issues that are prominent in an evolving practice. A valuable and enjoyable text.
A useful text to promote good practice and encourage reflection
This is a delightful text, providing a detailed overview of Early Communication and Language in an easily to read format. The text is full of activities to consolidate and apply understanding in this complex area of development.
Really good links to practice. Identifies different methods for different situations. Would help those starting out in EY
An excellent book that is comprehensive and well laid out. It will be a very useful text for students on an Early Years related programme.
