TWO MORE LITERACY RESOURCES
In response to the listing in the May 30, 2002 ExchangeEveryDay,
we have received several additional recommendations:
Dr. Alice Sterling Honig recommended Beverly Ottosbo's Language Development in
Early Childhood. Columbus Ohio: Merrill-Prentice Hall, 2002. Honig observes, "This
clear, easy to read book gives a provider the whole gamut of experiences and interactions
that will facilitate emergent literacy from early infancy onward and also gives
lots of ideas to support early language learning."
Several other subscribers recommended the Talk, Reach, Read Resource Guide
produced by the Child Care Action Campaign and funded by Citigroup. This is a
colorful, idea-filled guide for parents and caregivers. It provides advice on
promote reading by talking to children, reaching out to embrace children, and
reading to them frequently. For more information about this resource and about
the Child Care Action Campaign, go to www.childcareaction.org.
