Children?s early writing is multimodal: drawing pictures and adding text to their drawings in the form of letters or lines to represent writing, or telling adults about what the drawings represent (Clay, 1975; Harste, Woodward, & Burke, 1984). A few of the points raised are explored a little further in later chapters which deal with some of the different genres of poetry and their exponents in various cultures. The focus throughout is the romance, not the acts of expression.

Popular culture and media relentlessly reproduce existing relationships between dominant and subordinate groups. In this sense, elegiac poetry in Africa does not often seem to be a distinctly recognized genre. Reading aloud prepares young children to become independent readers, and introduces older readers to a wide variety of books they may not pick up on their own.
