Great resource. Only complaint is that it is a little repetitive in some chapters.
Easterbrooks encourages us to radiate our conception of literacy from deaf children into the sphere of ALL children, but she fails to offer clear historical precedence.
Please read this book critically with other resources (CHILD'S TALK and CHILDREN'S MINDS).
