McKay, Roberta A.; Kendrick, Maureen E.
Canadian Journal of Research in Early Childhood Education, v8 n4 p7-22 Jan 2001
Explored images that young children construct of literacy in their lives, both inside and outside of school. Analysis of the drawings of 48 children in grades 1-3 revealed a shift in the children's images of themselves in relation to literacy with each grade level. The influence of home and family on literacy behaviors was also noted. (Author/TJQ)
