Henze relates her research to the challenges of providing formal education to children who come from a variety of cultures, and thus her work is valuable to all educators interested in the cultural roots of knowledge and learning. She also provides a thorough discussion of her research methodology, which will be helpful to readers intending to carry out their own research on culture and learning.
—Harvard Educational Review
Henze's interesting study contributes to the literature concerning the importance of informal teaching and learning in cognitive development....The specific contribution of this volume lies in the richness of the account of teaching/learning episodes through Henze's sociolinguistic microanalysis, and in her argument focusing on the important distinction between truth and lies in cognitive development and in teaching/learning situations.

She has done careful and sensitive ethnographic research in Greece, focused on educational problems of teaching and learning in everyday life, and used the best of linguistic and sociolinguistic methods.
