    Even as sociocultural diversity continues to grow in the U.S., many classrooms offer a one-size-fits-all curriculum in which assessment relies heavily on standardized tests. Rejecting the narrow viewing of young children solely as prospective students, the authors see them as "simultaneously players, learners, readers of the world and words, artists—among other identities." This volume gives us rich evidence of the role of stories (enacted and told), imaginative play, and writing in children's language learning. Copublished with Teachers College Press
