Descriptions Sharing Books and Stories to Promote Language and Literacy

The role of parent-child and teacher-child shared story telling and storybook reading is a key vehicle for supporting children’s development of emergent literacy and early language skills. This highly usable and practical book brings the advantages of sharing books and stories to educational and clinical settings, effectively demonstrating how it may be used to support:

print knowledge

phonological awareness

vocabulary

inferential language abilities

grammatical and narrative skills

With contributions from notable scholars who actively conduct research in the areas of education, developmental psychology, speech language pathology, reading, and early literacy, this unique resource synthesizes and applies current theory and research on uses of sharing books and stories in educational and intervention contexts.
