Examines influences of text language and structure and text-picture relationships on 33 preschoolers' emergent readings of three picture books and teacher-led shared readings that preceded them. Indicates findings on emergent readings support a transactional model of emergent reading and highlight the importance of considering the influence of textual features on early reading behaviors and knowledge.
