Reflection is a vital part of learning, and yet in early childhood, research work on reflection is most commonly on that undertaken by teachers, and not children.

Furman, Cara – Schools: Studies in Education, 2019
Much has been written about the importance of giving personal attention to children's written work. The focus has been on the effect of this feedback on the writing and on the child.

The overarching purpose of writing is to communicate. As such, the intended audience is a critical consideration for writers.

In this paper, we demonstrate the relationship between reading and writing for pleasure. Children read a wide range of media as well as books for pleasure and develop strong affective bonds with the artefacts of literacy they encounter.
