Children under 3 and books

"Read! Read!" "Book! Book!": two children's responses to books, from birth to three.

This is a lecture organised by the University of Glasgow's, Department of Curriculum Studies, and UKLA (United Kingdom Literacy Association). Dr Virginia Lowe kept a daily record of her children's contact with books, and used this diary as the basis of a thesis and then a book. In her lecture, she will discuss her children's reactions to books up to the age of three, their visual literacy, understanding that the words come from the text not the pictures, recognising individual illustrator's styles, and etc.

The lecture is on Wednesday 1st April at 5pm, Rm 234, St Andrew's Building, 11 Eldon St, Glasgow.
