Editorial Reviews

Review

This practical book is full of specific information on how to develop young children's critical-thinking skills.
Children's Learning Association Quarterly

...provides a compelling illustration of the role of children's literature in the classroom and in children's lives....To use Vasquez's words, it will challenge us 'to make significant' the issues that matter.
Language Arts

This book presents a 'hot topic'--critical literacy--in a unique setting: a junior kindergarten....Most people, teachers in particular, think primary age kids, let alone preschoolers, are too young for this. Vivian shows not only that it can be done, but that done well (and her practice was certainly gorgeous), it promotes a depth of learning that teachers, parents, and even the kids themselves recognize....The case she makes for critical literacy being not only powerful but pleasurable and hopeful is important and often missing from other books on the subject....What an extraordinary achievement and what an extraordinary contribution to the fields of early childhood education, early literacy, and language education!

Vasquez vividly depicts a radically different kind of curriculum that allows the reader to imagine a new range of what's possible in schools. Her use of a theoretical 'tool kit' makes the conceptual framework accessible. What is most amazing and compelling about this book is that the research takes place in a pre-kindergarten class. Readers are confronted with the narrowness of our own ideologies about what little folks can and cannot do. This book makes a great contribution in terms of what are appropriate curricula and expectations for young children.
