Sociologists often study exotic cultures by immersing themselves in an environment until they become accepted as insiders. In this fascinating account by acclaimed researcher William A. Corsaro, a scientist "goes native" to study the secret world of children.
Here, for the first time, are the children themselves, heard through an expert who knows that the only way to truly understand them is by becoming a member of their community. That's just what Corsaro did when he traded in his adult perspective for a seat in the sandbox alongside groups of preschoolers.
Corsaro's journey of discovery is as fascinating as it is revealing. Living among and gaining the acceptance of children, he gradually comes to understand that a child's world is far more complex than anyone ever suspected. He documents a special culture, unique unto itself, in which children create their own social structures and exert their own influences.
At a time when many parents fear that they don't spend enough time with their children, and experts debate the best path to healthy development, seeing childhood through the eyes of a child offers parents and caregivers fresh and compelling insights. Corsaro calls upon all adults to appreciate, embrace, and savor their children's culture. He asks us to take a cue from those we hold so precious and understand that "we're all friends, right?"
From the Inside Flap: "Lots of people write about children. William Corsaro had the patience to sit down in the sandbox and the playground and listen to them first. What he found out will open your eyes. We're Friends, Right? is a landmark" -- Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point
"Corsaro is legendary as a researcher of children. With his incredible insight into the world of young children, he brilliantly demonstrates their amazing capacities and competencies. Conflict, friendship, rejection, and attraction are all described in a fresh and engaging way through Corsaro’s empathetic voice. We’re Friends, Right? is well-read and entertaining -- and it promises to make the reader wiser." -- Jens Qvortrup, professor of sociology, Norwegian University for Science and Technology, Trondheim
"William Corsaro paints an ethnographic portrait of the group life of young children with uncommon depth, insight, and accuracy. He suggests new aspects of what is important about high quality programs that foster continuity and close relationships. This is a lively, illuminating, and often funny book that will nourish both professionals and parents." -- Carolyn Pope Edwards, Professor of Psychology and Family and Consumer Sciences, University of Nebraska at Lincoln
