This exploratory study observed seven parent-child dyads reading two online storybooks with branching stories incorporating choice points at which readers choose the path the story would follow. Results indicated that parents and child engaged in many of the same behaviors observed for traditional storybooks and that utterances involved similar levels of abstraction. Typically it was the preschoolers who selected the path the story would take at the choice points. (Author/KB)
