Growing Up Literate - Australian literacy research for practice presents in each chapter a research study that explores issues for teaching literacy in the early years in an Australian context.

The studies bridge theory and practice in order to strengthen pedagogies and professional learning.

They challenge assumptions and beliefs about teaching and learning, and about the skills, achievements and literacy needs of Australian children in a diverse range of communities.

The studies in this book highlight the importance of the years before school in giving children the best start to their literacy development, current Australian early childhood literacy practices, as children transition from home to preschool and to school, principles and practices that can stimulate and support more effective literacy education in early years, and practices in response to the needs of children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds or those living in rural and remote locations.
