Speech is a very social and embodied activity, which has its own momentum and rewards. Most children love to talk to each other, and as we saw with Paley’s (1981) class, they draw each other forward into the world of ideas that they talk about. Reading as an “asocial act” requires the child to engage with a speaker, the author, who is disembodied and unresponsive and does not create openings for the child’s own introjections into the web of language and thought.
