Weaving Chains of Affect and Cognition: A Young Child's Understanding of CD-ROM Talking Books.
Labbo, Linda D.; Kuhn, Melanie R.
Journal of Literacy Research, v32 n2 p187-210 Jun 2000
Examines in-depth one kindergarten child's comprehension when reading "considerate" (including multimedia effects integral to the story) and "inconsiderate" (including incidental multimedia effects) CD-ROM talking books in a classroom computer center. Finds considerate CD-ROM talking books support the child's understanding and retelling of the story, and inconsiderate talking books resulted in the child's inability to retell the story in a cohesive way.
