Literacy within the Early years includes talking about books, print in the environment, early mark making and writing, as well as sharing books and reading. The EYFS in England and Wales emphasise the fundamental importance of literacy and sharing books. Being literate is essential in almost every aspect of adult life whether we are planning a holiday, selecting a birthday card, or delivering parcels. Literacy is often thought of as the ability to read and write but it also includes being able to speak and listen to people around you within your community.
