context within which learning takes place. We believe that these advantages far outweigh the drawbacks that result from the fact that the control of variables in such a situation is a somewhat more delicate task. It is clear that this is not a question of opposing experimental studies to field studies but far more a question of viewing the two as complementary parts of the same whole.
The research that is presented here would not have been possible without the active cooperation of the students of the Maison des Petits and their teacher, Nicole Elliott, to whom we owe our sincere thanks. We should also like to thank Nilima Changkakoti, Colette Grobéty, Martine Mornacchi, Ladislas Ntamakiliro, Christiane Perregaux, and Gianreto Pini for their assistance in the gathering and analysis of this data, and Mara Georgi for editing assistance in English. We are also grateful to Linnea Ehri for her insightful comments.
