ABOUT THIS BOOK
ABOUT THIS BOOK
At age five, the author's son posted this sign over his workbench: DO NAT DSTRB GNYS AT WRK. The “work” from which he refused to be disturbed was typical for children—learning to read and write. Glenda Bissex goes beyond the chronicle of this accomplishment to provide the first in–depth case study of a child’s confrontation with written language.
