What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
As literacy teachers, scholars, and researchers, it is truly up to us to define the issues of most importance, talk with each other about them, and advance the field together.  The International Handbook of Research on Children’s Literacy, Learning and Culture does just that.  Itis the most comprehensive collection of authors who present some of the biggest issues facing us today, leaving room for its readers to advance the field and envision possibilities for tomorrow.—Dawnene D. Hassett, University of Wisconsin-Madison

One expects in a handbook of this nature, to find a comprehensive survey of the complex field of literacy around the globe. However, what sets this book apart from others is the undoubted ability of the editors to bring together a diverse group of highly talented scholars pursuing innovative lines of inquiry. The HB thus encapsulates their willingness to be proactive in fostering exciting, innovative directions for the future. All this will ensure that the volume will remain highly topical and current – a real pacesetter in the field for years to come. —Roger Openshaw, Professor and Personal Chair in History of Education,Massey University Institute of Education,New Zealand.
