Play and Early Literacy Developmentby James F. Christie
This book overviews the sociolinguistic and psychological approaches to studying play and literacy. It offers research studies that relate different aspects of play to emergent reading and writing behaviors. The use of certain language structures, storybook reenactments, literacy activities during play, and notions of reality and pretense are considered. It also presents applied research on how manipulation of play environments, teacher involvement in play, and play training can promote literacy growth.
“I found this book both impressive and exciting because it presents a thorough and representative view of play and early literacy through the inclusion of both psychologically- and socologically-oriented research.” Robert G. Collier, Western Illinois University
