Meet state and national literacy standards through 260+ play-based activities.

For decades early childhood educators in high-quality programs have understood that the transition into reading and writing occurs naturally when young children are surrounded by opportunities to interact with print in ways that are meaningful to them. The original edition of More Than Letters, first published in 2001, showed teachers how to intentionally help children develop literacy skills through hands-on, play-based activities.

Expanded chapters include activities that target specific concepts included in national literacy standards.
