Reading, v35 n2 p47-53 Jul 2001
Adopts a cross-cultural approach to understand contexts in which young children become familiar with literacy. Notes that early years practitioners in Singapore, Australia, France, and England responded to questionnaires, were observed in action and interviewed. Finds that learning experiences practitioners provided for children were influenced by a range of factors, such as the contested role of preschools as preparation for schooling. (RS)
