Mohr, Kathleen A. J.
Reading Psychology, v24 n2 p163-76 Apr-Jun 2003
Describes a study of book preferences among 190 first graders. Indicates that Hispanic and non-Hispanic students were more alike than different in their preferences. Concludes that an overwhelming majority selected informational, rather than narrative books. Notes that this finding counters notions that young readers prefer stories and desire books that mirror them in culturally pertinent ways. (SG)
