Examined how Chinese and American Indian mothers (20 mother-child dyads from each culture) supported their young children's emergent literacy development during everyday interactions. Found that Chinese mothers tended to privilege print-based literacy interactions more than American Indian mothers. American Indian mothers tended to privilege literacy interactions based on oral narratives of life and personal experiences. The two groups emphasized and supported different aspects of their children's early literacy development. (Author/KB)
