This is a focused text on early years' language and literacy for all students studying for degrees and foundation degrees in early childhood, early years and related disciplines and for candidates on EYPS pathways. It discusses language acquisition and development and covers development theory, talking with babies and the factors that affect development. Practical guidance on how to support children's language acquisition through rhymes, songs, story books and storytelling helps students see how theory links to practice. The text also examines the question 'what comes before phonics?' and includes interactive activities and theory focus features.
