Social Development, v10 n3 p374-98 2001
Interviewed 32 families concerning their narrative practices, basic information about the children's story attachments, and the mothers' beliefs and practices concerning their children's attachments. Found that story attachments were social in two ways: Children created relationships with story characters, and formed story attachments with caregivers whose beliefs and practices supported such attachments.
