LLM enters the 54th year of its life with the first article in our Book Reviews section. Craig Volker's review of Teaching Writing to Children in Indigenous Languages: Instructional Practices from Global Contexts edited by Ari Sherris and Joy Kreeft Peyton is particularly significant in this Decade of Indigenous Languages, declared by UNESCO. It is hoped that this review will assist teachers in the field and policy makers, alike.


LLM invites you now to fill this year's volume with your thoughts and contributions!
