Abstract

In this paper folio the emergent literacy of young children is examined from three perspectives: the child, the family, and the community. In the first paper, the contribution of everyday experiences in children's literacy development are discussed. These include oral language interaction, storybook reading, writing experiences, environmental print and play. In the second paper the influence of the family on children's literacy development is considered. Family characteristics, which include both status and process variables are identified and their impact on children's literacy is considered with respect to the research literature. In the third paper the development of family literacy programs, as a response to support families in the literacy development of their children, is discussed. The roles of the school and community in supporting family literacy programs are considered.
