On the Narrative Nature of Young Children's Iconic Representations: Some Evidence and Implications.
van Oers, Bert
International Journal of Early Years Education, v5 n3 p237-45 Oct 1997
Examines the use of iconic representations in young children from a Vygotskian perspective. Uses analysis of children's drawings as basis for argument that iconic representations are narrative in nature: children supplement drawings with verbal symbols to ensure that intended meanings are clear and thereby learn to carry out semiotic activity and improve this activity with more abstract symbols.
