Editorial Reviews

Review

"...Corsaro reveals the details of kid culture in a way that few professional experts can. ...an illuminating read..." -- FOCUS, April 1, 2004

"...an absorbing account of a dedicated researcher who strived to better understand children by immersing himself in preschool culture." -- Wisconsin Bookwatch, March 2004

"Corsaro's book contains unique and valuable policy insights into early education issues..." -- Library Journal

"This book is delightful to read. ... Highly recommended to anyone who seeks to understand the social world of childhood." -- Childhood Education, September 22, 2004

From the Inside Flap

"Lots of people write about children. William Corsaro had the patience to sit down in the sandbox and the playground and listen to them first. What he found out will open your eyes. We're Friends, Right? is a landmark" -- Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point

"Corsaro is legendary as a researcher of children. With his incredible insight into the world of young children, he brilliantly demonstrates their amazing capacities and competencies. Conflict, friendship, rejection, and attraction are all described in a fresh and engaging way through Corsaro’s empathetic voice. We’re Friends, Right? is well-read and entertaining -- and it promises to make the reader wiser." -- Jens Qvortrup, professor of sociology, Norwegian University for Science and Technology, Trondheim

"William Corsaro paints an ethnographic portrait of the group life of young children with uncommon depth, insight, and accuracy. He suggests new aspects of what is important about high quality programs that foster continuity and close relationships. This is a lively, illuminating, and often funny book that will nourish both professionals and parents." -- Carolyn Pope Edwards, Professor of Psychology and Family and Consumer Sciences, University of Nebraska at Lincoln

Format: Paperback
Written by a leading authority on child ethnography William A. Corsaro (Robert H. Shaffer Class of 1967 Endowed Professor of Sociology, Indiana University - Bloomington), We're Friends Right? Inside Kids' Culture is an absorbing account of a dedicated researcher who strived to better understand children by immersing himself in preschool culture. A scientific analysis as well as an intriguing personal narration of individual and illustrative case studies, We're Friends Right? offers a new perspective on child psychology, development, and research. We're Friends Right? is a seminal contribution to Child Development and Parenting Studies reference collections -- as well as highly recommended reading which is thoroughly accessible to non-specialist readers with an interest in gaining an informed and informative insight into the complexities of early childhood.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bill Corsaro describes the children like they are animals in the wild, down to the very last detail. This book is interesting if you want an in depth look into the world of children's play. It does not, however, give any practical advice on how to better facilitate children's play or help kids enter the culture of their peers more successfully. All in all, it was interesting, but rather uninformative.
