'In the third edition of this book, Browne provides a fully updated guide to language and literacy in the early years, taking into account current research, policy and practice. Chapters cover a wide range of topics such as reading, writing and spelling as well as chapters on special educational needs, bilingual learners and assessment. The book is intended for early years and primary teachers and practitioners in training and will provide them with an easy to read, informative and comprehensive guide to how children acquire these skills' - Early Years Educator
This book is a useful resource for student teachers as it has quite a good layout in terms of topics covered. Also available are additional resources for the chapters on the SAGE website. Have found examples and case studies quite useful.
This book has been extremely beneficial in helping to develop communication modules on the Early Years degree. It is set out well and easy to read, I will definitely be recommending it to my students to read in order to support them with their work and helping them to develop their knowledge further.
A very useful text for students which introduces them to the development of language and literacy in the early years and Key Stage 1. I am sure that the students will particularly find the sections on planning and resources very useful.
A comprehensive account of developing language and litearcy which can inform practice and aid research into this area. A useful addition to the English reading list for undergraduates in initial teacher education.
Ann Browne's 3rd edition is a comprehensive guide to language and literacy in a primary classroom. She has included everything to do with literacy from organising a Book Week to gifted and talented support. This is a great almanac for classroom teachers.
A highly recommneded text for students who will specialise in Foundation Stage which presents pedegogical concepts clearly alongside practical examples.
The book is important issue of classic texts on the language acquisition, espesially teaching and learning English in the early years. The new edition is suitable for my students, because of new curriculum guidance for the Early Years Foundation Stage and the new Primary Framework in England as well.
On my point of view the design \ outline\ of the chapters is exellent with little plan at the begining and summary, reflective activities and suggestions for further reading at the end, examples of good practice.
good background reading for all teachers especially for those involved in the early years where they are teaching chidren to read
Very useful supplementary text for our literacy input on Masters' courses.
Grounded in practical examples from classroom practice, an excellent guide to teaching literacy.
This continues to be one of core texts for Primary and Early Years PGCE English. It draws on research with useful reflective activities for students to consider.
My colleague Jenny MOsley co-teaches on this module. I was sent two copies so gave one to her. During 2009-10 we have found the Browne to be a useful complement to our Y1 CLL and English key text (Bradford, H. (2009) Communication, Language and Literacy in the Early Years Foundation Stage. London: Routledge) and our Y3 CLL and English key text (Riley, J. (2006) Language and Literacy 3-7. London: Sage.

Some nice material in this, and I will order library copies and add to supplemental reading list. Particularly good to have two chapters on writing. However, not a replacement for essential reading - another Sage book (Whitehead)
