This paper investigates the links between poverty and literacy development, a topic of great concern for many who work to help low-income children develop early literacy competencies. Underscoring the importance of developing, implementing, and promoting early literacy development among these at-risk children, the paper will assist global educators to enhance parental support for children’s language and literacy development, rethink teaching practices within literacy programmes or language arts lessons, improve understanding of issues related to language and literacy development among low-income children, and help to create and maintain better learning environments.
