Overview

Transforming Early Learners into Superb Readers: Promoting Literacy at School, at Home, and within the Community aids elementary educators, reading specialists, school administrators, private and public educators, parents, and caregivers who want to help early learners become proficient readers. The early years are the most important for children, because they are the formative years, so it is vital for children to build a solid reading foundation when they are most receptive. Andrea Nelson-Royes contends that if all these individual players collectively help to develop a child's reading readiness, all children may thrive from a high-quality education and a love of literacy.
