Reading and Writing During Early Childhood

The article explores the possibility of initiating strategies for creating literacy environment for the very young children of the literate as well as non-literate societies. Basing the argument on the theories of emergent literacy, the article highlights the importance of creating an input rich environment for developing the child’s literacy urge since her infancy. It also discusses the importance of nurturing the literacy capabilities of the children of the non-liberate societies by exposing them to the locally available resources in informal, meaningful and non-threatening ways and advocates the ways in which the Anganwadi workers can play a pro-active role in facilitating the emergent literacy of these children.
