"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. Here he documents a special culture, unique unto itself, in which children create their own social structures and exert their own influences."--Jacket.
