Winner of the primary literacy category in the Welsh Books Council's Basic Skills Book Awards 2007. Good literacy skills are vital for success at school - but often the most important foundations are laid outside the classroom. This book tells parents and carers of three-to-seven year olds all they need to know about how to give children the best possible start in literacy. Packed with exciting games and activities, it shows:

- why parental support makes such a difference

- how to help a child become a good communicator

- ways to encourage listening skills

- how to develop literacy through music and movement

- the benefits of reading to children and telling stories

- what 'phonics' is all about

- how to help children acquire the range of skills involved in learning to write.

Flying Start with Literacy illustrates how to use simple everyday situations as powerful ways to support literacy learning. It also suggests helpful resources and lists the best websites for additional information and advice.>
