How do children come to literacy? From Pictures to Words represents the view that encouraging young children to make pictures - to invent their own graphic representations - sets the literacy process in motion. Recent research in psychology and education in-dicates that children gain experience with written language by being read to, dictating their stories and having opportunity to experiment with crayons, markers and pencils. As they do so, they begin to realize that these marks, alone or in combination, stand for the sounds of language. Properly encouraged, a child's natural interest in drawing pictures sets the literacy process in motion. The path is from telling stories with pictures to telling stories with words. This program observes how these early interests can evolve into a passion for reading and writing.
