Children's Reading and Spelling Reviews


"Teachers and researchers at every level will find fruitful guidance in this important book on the generative process of children's reading and spelling and the effect of the learning environment. Nunes and Bryant have provided a rigorous, systematic and thorough theory/research-into-practice analysis of using conditional rules in learning to read and spell and intervention strategies. They are among the first researchers to emphasize the connection between oral language and written language through morphological, syntactical and word-specific knowledge over and above phonology. The book is a tour de force, rich in details, lucid and insightful." Che Kan Leong, Research Professor Emeritus, University of Saskatchewan, Canada and Hon. Professor, Chinese University of Hong Kong. "I could not be more enthusiastic about this book. I would love to see this volume reach as many readers as possible in the research community and in the practitioner community. This book will become the 'bible' of the more advanced stages of spelling development that remain understudied." Keith E. Stanovich, Professor of Human Development and Applied Psychology, University of Toronto "'Children's Reading and Spelling', by two pioneers in reasearch on how phonological and morphological awareness contribute to written word learning, is a must-read for beginning and seasoned researchers, as well as psychology and education students." Virginia Berninger, Professor of Educational Psychology, Center on Human Development and Disability, University of Washington
