One key measure of a country’s status in the world is the literacy of its people; at the same time, global migration has led to increased interest in bilingualism and foreign language learning as topics of research. Literacy Development and Enhancement Across Orthographies and Cultures reviews international studies of the role of literacy in child development, particularly how children learn their first written language and acquire a second written and spoken one. Comparisons and contrasts are analyzed across eight countries and 11 languages, including English, Spanish, Mandarin, Hebrew, Dutch, and Catalan. Using qualitative and quantitative, established and experimental methods, contributors trace toddlers’ development of print awareness, clear up common myths regarding parental involvement and non-involvement in their children’s literacy, and suggest how the spelling of words can aid in the gaining of vocabulary. For added relevance to educators, the book includes chapters on early intervention for reading problems and the impact of pedagogical science on teaching literacy. Highlights of the coverage: Letter name knowledge in early spelling development Early informal literacy experiences Environmental factors promoting literacy at home Reading books to young children: what it does—and doesn’t do The role of orthography in literacy acquisition among monolingual and bilingual children Gaining literacy in a foreign language Instructional influences on literacy growth Literacy Development and Enhancement Across Orthographies and Cultures adds significant depth and interest to the knowledge base and should inspire contributions from additional languages and orthographies. It belongs in the libraries of researchers and educators involved in cognitive psychology, language education, early childhood education and linguistics.

Seit über siebzig Jahren verzaubert Ein Baum wächst in Brooklyn weltweit neue Leserinnen und Leser. Dieser Roman über ein Mädchen, das gegen alle Hindernisse anliest, ist nun endlich wieder auf Deutsch erhältlich – eine Geschichte, erfüllt von Lebenslust und Kraft, beseelt von der Euphorie über das Sein. Die elfjährige Francie Nolan ist eine unbändige Leserin, eine Süßigkeiten-Connaisseuse, eine genaue Beobachterin der menschlichen Natur – und sie hat einen Traum: Sie möchte Schriftstellerin werden. Ein Traum, der in dem bunten, ruppigen Williamsburg von 1912 kaum zu erfüllen ist. Hier brummen die Mietshäuser vor all den Zugewanderten, jeden Tag wird von hart verdientem Geld das Essen zusammengeklaubt, Kinder strömen durch die Straßen, um für ein paar Pennies Süßigkeiten zu ergattern. Doch wenn Francie auf der Feuertreppe in der Sonne sitzt und liest, gibt es für sie keinen schöneren Ort. Und wenn sie auch gegen so manche Widrigkeit anschreiben muss, ist sie sich einer Sache gewiss: dass es sich immer lohnt, nach dem puren Leben zu streben.
