A Cognitive Anthropological Perspective on First-Graders' Classifications of Picture Storybooks.
Leung, Cynthia B.
Reading Psychology, v22 n1 p17-40 Jan-Mar 2001
Finds that children in a culturally diverse first-grade classroom sorted 15 picture books into piles of books having similar characteristics, classifying books by topic, genre, author, culture, emotional response, and physical property of the book. Discusses how some aspects of children's classification systems were similar to the teacher's way of categorizing books in the classroom library. (SR)
