Parental Influence on Child Interest in Shared Picture Book Reading.
Ortiz, Camilo; Stowe, Rebecca M.; Arnold, David H.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v16 n2 p263-81 2001
Evaluated whether parents can affect their children's interest in shared reading. Found that after 1 week, children in the interest intervention group were more interested in shared reading than children in the attention-control group. After 4 weeks, intervention parents still reported increased child interest, although direct observations suggested somewhat diminished effects. (Author/KB)
