Kids talking: learning relationships and culture with children
Kids Talking explores communication among young children in a child-care setting, showing how games and even tentative interactions can turn into rich relationships--and a vibrant learning culture where friendships, power, and control are managed in creative ways. Filled with lively anecdotes and examples, this engaging book looks at ways children's passionate and mixed signals, communication uncertainty, conflict, and games can be transformed into effective messages. Readers who work with preschool-aged children, including parents, child-care workers, and teachers, will find useful insights and suggestions for how to enhance communication skills in young children.
