Interpreting the voices of under three year olds is central to early childhood education. Yet entering into their life-worlds is fraught with challenges and unrealised possibilities. This ground-breaking book generates a dialogue about the multiple ways researchers have exploited a range of methods for approaching, accessing, understanding and interpreting infant voice. Each chapter explores the kinds of ethical considerations and dilemmas that may arise in this process. The book itself represents a chorus of international voices (researchers, children, teachers and parents), all adding to a discussion about various circumstances, dilemmas and possibilities involved in doing research with our youngest. This book is an essential read for researchers and teachers alike who seek to 'listen' and 'see' very young children with fresh ears and eyes.

Annotation. Arguing that dominant discourses have designated those who are younger as requiring protection and control, Cannella (education, Texas A&M U.) and Kincheloe (education, CUNY Graduate Center and Brooklyn College) argue that there is a need for a postmodern childhood studies that challenges regimes of truth, recognizing that children have not generally had a voice in their own creation. They present 11 contributions that move toward such a project of disrupting adult/child dualisms. Chapters discuss the discourses of welfare "reform" in the United States, the construction of childhood by corporate agendas promoting consumption, Korean views of young children, the construction of the Euro-American concept of "voice" as it affects preschoolers in India, and colonialist biases inherent in modernist constructions of education.

"This collection of tools and resources are designed to support and empower children and young people's participation as active citizens and learners. They are rigorously informed by a research study of South Australia's statewide consultations with 350 young children across diverse regions and localities. These consultations set out to document children's views on what was important to them in their communities and what they wished for in their lives... This study provided rich insights into factors that contributed to the success of these consultations, challenges that arose, and ways in which the processes might be further enhanced. These insights came from interviews, observations, document analyses, and artefacts created by children, all of which took stock of the voices and perspectives of all who were involved - children, educators, families and policymakers. This study resonates with research conducted elsewhere in Australia and overseas, while providing fresh insights into the processes involved in consulting with young children" -- page 9.
