Learning From Children Who Read at an Early Age is the result of a three-year research project in which the authors studied a group of children who learnt to read without being taught, from before they started school until the end of Year 2 when they were given their first National Curriculum assessments.

Using this study as a framework for examining how children make progress over their time in Key Stage 1 across a range of literacy skills, the authors suggest guidelines which teachers can use to help all children progress with reading.


'… this book is … a useful confirmation of the current position on early literacy acquisition and points the way to further research to establish the exact enabling mechanisms. - Lesley Nock, Improving Schools
