Narratives from the Crib : With a New Foreword by Emily Oster, the Child in the Crib Paperback / softback
Edited by Katherine Nelson
This classic psychological case study focuses on one talkative child's emerging ability to use language, her capacity for understanding, for imagining, and for making inferences and solving problems.
In wide-ranging essays, scholars offer multifaceted linguistic and psychological analyses of two-year-old Emily's bedtime conversations with her parents and pre-sleep monologues, taped over a fifteen-month period.
In a foreword written for this new edition, Emily, now an adult, reflects on the experience of having been a research subject without knowing it.
