Julie Cigman uses a vast range of personal vignettes to explain best practice when encouraging boys to write. The theory is brought to life with these recollections, making this a very informative and enjoyable book to read. The ideas for working together with boys are beautifully simple and are tried and tested. This book would support both experienced practitioners and those who are just starting out, because it is so accessible and uses examples in such a delightful way - Kathy Brodie, Early Years Consultant, UKEarly Years Consultant, UK. Julie Cigman has given us a practical and principled way forward in supporting boys' writing. This book is shot through with rich examples of effective practice and deserves to be widely used. Young boys' writing is bought alive for us in these pages, and the groundedness in practice demonstrates how boys' achievement in writing can be appropriately supported from an early age. This is a book for everyone interested in promoting early literacy development. An excellent read and a practical compendium -Professor Cathy Nutbrown, School of Education, The University of Sheffield. How do we give young children a ‘writers’ voice’ and allow them to become creative and inspired writers? Supporting Boys’ Writing in the Early Years shows you how you can help boys to become confident and capable writers by supporting them to write in ways that make sense to them – on the move, outside and inside, in dens, in bushes, in mud, or sprawled on the floor dressed as superheroes. Drawing on four boys writing projects involving over 80 practitioners, the book reveals that a playful, child-centred approach can allow boys and girls to develop a writers’ voice and raise attainment in writing as well as enhancing all aspects of young children’s development. With a strong focus on observation-led assessment and planning, the book is full of practical ideas to improve the writing environment and provide writing opportunities that will be enjoyable and motivating for children. Featuring a wide range of case studies, it covers: the stages that children move through in learning to write; how you can change and develop your learning environments to give children inspiring resources and opportunities to write; helping children to find a purpose to write through their play; practical ways to create a partnership with parents that builds on their strengths as educators at home. This book will help you to create a truly enabling environment for writing and is essential reading for all those that want the children in their setting to become confident, motivated and creative writers.

Activity theory is an interdisciplinary approach to human sciences that originates in the cultural-historical psychology school, initiated by Vygotsky, Leont'ev, and Luria. It takes the object-oriented, artifact-mediated collective activity system as its unit of analysis, thus bridging the gulf between the individual subject and the societal structure. This 1999 volume includes 26 chapters on activity theory by authors from ten countries. In Part I of the book, central theoretical issues are discussed from different points of view. Some topics addressed in this part are epistemology, methodology, and the relationship between biological and cultural factors. Part II is devoted to the acquisition and development of language. This part includes a chapter that analyzes writing activity in Japanese classrooms, and a case study of literacy skills of a man with cerebral palsy. Part III contains chapters on play, learning, and education, and Part IV addresses the meaning of technology and the development of work activities. The final part covers issues of therapy and addiction.

"Dishpan Dad: A Guy's Guide to Raising Infants, Toddlers and Preschoolers" was written by and for a stay-at-home dad, but it's a book for essentially any parent who has children under age 5. In more than 80 chapters, the book delves into issues unique to at-home dads: being surrounded by moms-whose husbands eye you with suspicion or derision-crises of self worth, cultural dogma, stereotypes, emotional and intellectual challenges and more. It also gets down to the business of raising mannered, well-behaved, resilient kids. In "Dishpan Dad," fathers will learn where to get good parenting advice-and where not to get it-how to avoid doing laundry, at least for a while, the importance of mouth breathing, why candy for breakfast is a bad idea, the importance of a manly diaper bag and how much time and effort it takes to get kids ready and out the door. There is more, of course. Lots more, all packaged in a book that's educational, fun and easy to read.
