Debaryshe, Barbara D.
Journal of Child Language, v20 n2 p455-61 Jun 1993
Data from two-year-old children and mothers were collected concerning age at which she began to read to child, frequency of home reading, number of stories read per week, frequency of visits by child to library. Picture-book reading exposure was more strongly related to receptive than expressive language. Age of onset of home reading routines was most important predictor of oral language skills. (Author)
