Young Children's Comprehension of Pretend Causal Sequences.
Walker-Andrews, Arlene S.; Harris, Paul L.
Developmental Psychology, v29 n5 p915-21 Sep 1993
Two experiments assessed preschoolers' ability to understand pretend transformations. Subjects were two-, three-, and four-year-olds who viewed episodes in which either one or two similar props were altered in a pretend fashion. In both the single and double transformation, children demonstrated that they could keep track of the pretend transformations. (MDM)
