The Effect of Pictorial Detail and Elaboration on Children's Retention
Emmerich, Helen Jones; Ackerman, Brian P.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 21, 2, 241-248, Apr 76

Forty 4-year-olds and forty 5-year-olds were tested to assess reported trend that elaboration facilitates retention for older children. (JH)
