"'... this is a text well suited to university students beginning their study of language and literacy education in the primary school. It engages readers in the historical contextualisation of current issues in the field, as well as dealing with the key theoretical and practical professional issues primary teacher education students need to understand. A distinctive strength of this book is its functional sociolinguistic perspective on language and literacy education in the primary years, incorporating systematic, explicit knowledge of language description as a resource for meaning.' - Len Unsworth, Professor in English and Literacies Education, School of Education, University of New England"
