Product Description


′The positive and extremely important message that comes from ′Young Children Learning′ is that young children learn a great deal of value in the most informal of settings. The evidence that Barbara Tizard and Martin Hughes present to support this conclusion is convincing and stimulating.′ Peter Bryant, Oxford University <!––end––> --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

The second edition of this best–selling text includes a new introduction by Judy Dunn and offers the reader a fascinating account of an unusual research project that challenges many assumptions about how young children learn and how best to teach them. In particular it turns upside–down the commonly held belief that professionals know better than parents how to educate and bring up children; and it throws doubt on the theory that working–class children underachieve at school because of a language deficit at home. The authors′ evidence is the children′s own conversations which are quoted extensively and are delightful. Their account raises important issues about nursery schools and how they affect some children; and it persuades us, above all, to value parenting more highly, and to have fresh respect for the intellectual capabilities of young minds. This book will appeal to a wide readership, including early years professionals, developmental psychologists, and the parents of young children. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
