Product description


I knew from the title From Lullabies to Literature that these authors get it: A child's emotional and intellectual development begin at birth, with the first lullaby! As caregivers tell stories to young children or encourage children to create their own stories, this book helps to identify how story experiences facilitate communication, connection, and growth.

--Isabel Baker, president of The Book Vine for Children

This resource is a reminder of the central importance of rich oral language interactions and close interpersonal relationships. The authors promote story-centered interactions with infants and toddlers in a way that caregivers can easily and joyfully follow!

--Laurie Makin, Early Language and Literacy Advisor, coauthor of How to Develop Children's Early Literacy

The authors have given us a great gift: a delightful book that explains a myriad of practical and inspiring ways for caregivers and families to thoroughly enjoy sharing stories with all infants and toddlers. I certainly gathered many wonderful ideas about enthusiastic storytelling from this book!

--Diane Trister Dodge, founder and president of Teaching Strategies, Inc., coauthor of The Creative Curriculum series
