Picture Book Selection Behaviors of Emergent Readers: Influence of Genre, Familiarity, and Book Attributes.
Robinson, Clyde C.; And Others
Reading Research and Instruction, v36 n4 p287-304 Sum 1997
Surveys and analyzes preschoolers' and kindergartners' picture book choices by genre, familiarity, and four book attributes. Demonstrates that emergent readers appear to demonstrate genre preferences. Finds that children select familiar books more often and select books with a simple text. Counters previously held assumptions that emergent readers select books randomly. (PA)
