This dynamic text offers a rare glimpse into the literacy development of urban children and their families' role in it. Based on the author's candid interviews with her first-grade students, their parents and grandparents, this book challenges the stereotypical view that urban parents don't care about their children's education. By listening closely to the voices of her students and their families, the author helps us to move beyond negative assumptions, revealing complexities that have previously been undocumented.

""This is an important book.... The author's deft use of contemporary theories challenges the dominant ways of talking and thinking about reading in urban communities and paves the way for teacher inquiries that go beyond the documentation of classroom practices to the ideologies and discourses that construct these practices." --1
