Berryman, Julia C.; Windridge, Kate C.
Early Child Development and Care, v164 p49-62 Oct 2000
Examined relation of maternal age to 4-year-olds' verbal comprehension and mother-child interactions on a book-sharing task. Found children of mothers ages 35 and over at child's birth scored significantly higher on verbal comprehension than children of younger mothers. Found no maternal age differences on the book-sharing task. Findings pose possible link between maternal age, verbal comprehension, and home environment. (KB)
