The Handbook of Children's Literacy provides a unique collection of
papers, offering a multi-perspective, multi-disciplinary approach to
understanding alphabetic literacy. The analyses at word, text and
cultural levels offer an integrative view of literacy. Basic research,
theoretical advances, investigations in the classroom, analyses of
literacy acquisition by readers with special needs, cross-linguistic
comparisons and a historical and cultural perspective will enrich the
understanding of literacy of academics and practitioners alike. This
is a rare opportunity to consider literacy in breadth and depth by
consulting a single collection. The authors are distinguished experts
in their domain of investigation, teacher educators and teachers in
sixteen different countries.
