Placing the emphasis on the voices of the children themselves, the author looks at:
- what it feels like to be a reader in the digital age
- children's perceptions of reading
- home and school reading
- reading in multidimensional forms
- the future teaching of reading
Essential reading for all trainee and practising teachers, this critical examination of a vital topic will support all those who are interested in the way we can help future generations to become literate. This book will encourage researchers and practitioners alike to redefine their own views of literacy, and situate 'reading literacy' within the digital world in which young children now live.
