Overview

Learning From Children Who Read at an Early Age is the result of a three-year research project in which the authors studied a group of children who learnt to read without being taught, from before they started school until the end of Year 2 when they were given their first National Curriculum assessments.
Using this study as a framework for examining how children make progress over their time in Key Stage 1 across a range of literacy skills, the authors suggest guidelines which teachers can use to help all children progress with reading.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The concern is not children whose parents teach them, but those who autonomously learn to read before starting school. Stainthorp (child development and learning, Institute of Education) and Hughes (psychology, Royal Holloway College) undertook a three-year study of such children through the end of Year Two and their first national assessment. They found features of how they make progress, especially in the early stages, that teachers might use to help other students. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
