Family Literacy: Young Children Learning to Read and Write

Family Literacy: Young Children Learning to Read and Write
Heinemann, Second Edition, October 1998. Second printing.

“…Family Literacy documents the diverse ways in which six families use literacy daily in their lives. Through Taylor’s accessible writing, we get to know families who participate in “idiosyncratic processes” that result in children who are successful in learning to read. Even as they take literacy learning within their families for granted, their literacy histories inform the development of school curricula that build on the literacy knowledge of the children and their families…”
