Cultivating curiosity in children in primary schools is one of the most important things that we can do for them. Developing an enthusiasm for learning is at the very heart of human development and a central reason for teaching information and digital literacy, and is a crucial focus for school library work. This new edition includes information about the most recent primary curriculum, government initiatives and recent inspection changes in respect of the school library and digital media. It explains the importance of embedding information literacy into a whole school and curriculum context, making use of modern technology where appropriate. It outlines and explains the processes of research for young children and shows ways that teachers and librarians can develop and promote information and digital literacy through the primary school library and link it to classroom practice. It also includes a very useful and practical case study, some templates and a reading list.
