Drawing on current research and his own teaching, Daniel Meier presents detailed and sensitive portraits of children learning to make sense of literacy during the crucial early childhood years. Included are conversations with children, parents, and teachers about how they view literacy: why it is important, where it comes from, and what it encompasses. What emerges is a rich affirmation of the important role that these beliefs and values play in literacy learning. Highly readable, Scribble Scrabble offers a cogent and timely discussion of ways to unite developmentally appropriate and culturally responsive literacy practices. Anyone concerned about developing the literary talents of young children will find this volume immensely satisfying.
