This article is a compilation of reports on international literacy research. The report includes 3 separate reports on Canada, France and Russia. In the first report, research correspondent Linda M. Phillips, in collaboration with Christian Beaulieu, reports on the Canadian Language and Literacy Research Network (CLLRNet). The vision of CLLRNet is to improve language and literacy skills in Canadian children, enabling them to contribute more effectively to the social and economic life of their communities. This vision beckons language and literacy educators to help understand and address these challenges. The research projects within CLLRNet are organized around five integrated themes: (1) biological factors underlying the development of language and literacy skills; (2) sensory processes and environment; (3) language development; (4) literacy acquisition and development; and (5) social, economic, and program influences (family, schools, and communities). In the second report, Jacques Fijalkow reports on a January 2005 international colloquium in Angers, France, entitled Notation for Thinking: Developmental and Didactic Approaches. In the third, and final, report, Sergey M. Borodin presents a review of books and materials introduced in June 2002 at an international conference, Reading World and World of Reading, in St. Petersburg, Russia. These texts and materials were issued in late 2003 and early 2004, and many of them were published in St. Petersburg or were written by St. Petersburg authors.
