    Young Children Playing and Learning in a Digital Age (Christine Stephen and Susan Edwards) – good foundation text to help people look at digital technology and the early years from a cultural and critical perspective.

    Mindstorms: Children, Computers and Powerful Ideas (Prof. Seymour Papert) – Now available for free here Mindstorms (mit.edu)
    – It was written in 1980 so much is no longer relvant as it talks a lot about the LOGO programming language. BUT, everyone should read Chapter 1.
