ABSTRACT
Children's narratives contribute significantly to comprehending the varied aspects of children's lives. The intention of this review is to fill the gap by investigating the narratives of young children and what these narratives might reveal about the ways in which children construct literacy ability about their worlds and their place in it. Children represent themselves and their literacy experiences across time and place from diverse background. Narratives in the early years help explain the universe in which we live, as being similar to each other as well as different, as both entailing a separation of their procedures from lived experience.
