MEDIA REVIEWS
"We have here the welcome opportunity to practice textual analysis of the language produced by children from a variety of backgrounds. The book is user-friendly, and as an introductory text it will encourage undergraduate students, professional workers and parents to observe and think afresh about children's language development and the significance of the varying social contexts in which language is used and learned.."
-Michelle Aldridge, University of Wales, Cardiff
