Read Aloud, Play a Lot: Children's Spontaneous Responses to Literature.
Nikola-Lisa, W.
New Advocate, v5 n3 p199-213 Sum 1992
Describes the responses of children in kindergarten through second grade to reading aloud. Finds a proclivity toward a wide range of play with the action, sound, and rhythm of language related to the book's content. Suggests that verbal exclamations such as laughter, changing facial expressions, and imitative gestures are legitimate features of young children's aesthetic response to literature. (SR)
