Chinese Children's Reading Acquisition
Theoretical and Pedagogical Issues
edited by Wenling Li, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, USA
Janet S. Gaffney, University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, USA
Jerome L. Packard, Dept. of East Asian Languages and Cultures, University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA

Published research and conference presentations on the Chinese
language in the last decade have tended to focus on adult language
processing. This book provides a comprehensive resource for the
critical discussion of major issues in learning to read Chinese from a
child acquisition perspective.


The combined contributions from researchers in Asian studies,
linguistics, psycholinguistics, psychology, cognitive psychology,
reading, and education inform international comparative studies of
literacy by making apparent the features of the Chinese culture,
language, writing system, and pedagogy that may facilitate or impede
the acquisition of literacy.
