Abstract:

"Kate Pahl uses her detailed observations of children from a range of social, cultural and linguistic backgrounds to challenge and develop theories of communication and children's meaning making and to extend our understanding of the dynamic interplay between socio-cultural patterns and the inner worlds of children. She shows how boys use certain approaches to literacy which are seldom recognised for what they are, and the implications of this for boys' learning and literacy." "This book is for early years teachers, nursery nurses and all who live or work with young children. Parents and teachers can facilitate the development of the children in their care by responding to the book's rich illumination of the ways children make sense of and present their worlds."--Jacket.
