Bus, Adriana G.; van IJzendoorn, Marinus H.
Reading Research Quarterly, v30 n4 p998-1015 Oct-Dec 1995
Explores the usefulness of the attachment relationship between children and parents for explaining differences in parent-preschooler reading in high- and low-socioeconomic-status families. Finds that less secure dyads read less frequently. Proposes a developmental model of interactive reading. Concludes that programs must create a safe base from which children can explore literacy.
