Learning about literacy is a social act. Young children develop the necessary skills they will need to be competent and confident readers and writers from the people around them and their environment. Children need to know about their language(s) and the sounds and all about print and its uses. They need to develop a love of books and storytelling and have the confidence to express themselves, use their imagination and be creative. It is young children’s early experiences that lay the foundations for later success in learning to read and write. This program enables viewers to observe how verbal and symbolic communication develops from birth to five years of age, with a particular focus on how to support emerging literacy skills. It illustrates ways to encourage and support babies and young children to use and develop a love of books, rhymes, pretend play, and storytelling.
