Offers a way of thinking about literacy. This book takes a perspective on home-school learning, arguing that it is not so much the children's experiences that count, but rather what they make of them - with support from adults and peers. It challenges stereotypes by penetrating the private worlds of literacy learning in families.

Taking a new way of thinking about literacy, the book argues that it is not so much the children's experiences that count, but rather what they make of them - with support from adults and peers.
