Young Children Reading
At home and at school
- Rachael Levy - Institute of Education University College London, UK
Early Childhood Language & Literacy | Literacy | Teaching in Primary Schools
Placing the emphasis on the voices of the children themselves, the author looks at:
- what it feels like to be a reader in the digital age
- children's perceptions of reading
- home and school reading
- reading in multidimensional forms
- the future teaching of reading
Essential reading for all trainee and practising teachers, this critical examination of a vital topic will support all those who are interested in the way we can help future generations to become literate. This book will encourage researchers and practitioners alike to redefine their own views of literacy, and situate 'reading literacy' within the digital world in which young children now live.
Essential for all early childhood and QTS students to gain a balanced view of early reading and hear a real alternative to SSP. An amazing author and a must read for the sector
The research basis of this book enables theoretical perspectives and practical recommendations to be related to stories of children's experiences of texts. The use of short real-life narratives brings perspectives on literacy to life and establishes their relevance.
For me this is an essential text in order to understand the wealth that pupils bring into EY and Primary education. Too many children are turned off reading by poorly informed teaching. I applaud Levy for her work.
