A collection of essays on how children relate to each other, how they interact with the media, how their cognitive skills are affected by television, and how they understand television narrative. Contributors also examine differences in understanding and communicative skills between children of different ages and between children and adults.
`Over all, Children Communicating is a solid book...the collection is rich in the variety of perspectives it brings together and the array of ideas that it stimulates. It quite clearly demonstrates just how valuable to communication research the utilization of a developmental perspective can be.' -- Journal of Communication, Spring 1980
