Early Childhood Educators understand that young children bring with them a wealth of literacy understandings and competencies as they begin Kindergarten and Reception. The Book-making approach to literacy values and honours children’s prior learning, their cultural competence and their dispositions for learning. It uses these to drive learning deeper and to create a culture of thinking, talking and noticing about books. It values the intellectual quality of mark-making as an essential component of being a writer.

A book-making approach not only sees children from this competent lens, it empowers children to see themselves as competent writers. The approach challenges pedagogical practices that see children as empty learners; who are needy because they know so little.

We have faciliated workshops about the Pedagogy of Bookmaking for over 7 years - throughout South Australia, in New South Wales and now in Canada! This rich pedagogy engages children in language and literacy, motivates them to become deeply involved in their learning and also excites educators when they see children learning to their potential.
