Dowdall, Nicholas; Melendez-Torres, G. J.; Murray, Lynne; Gardner, Frances; Hartford, Leila; Cooper, Peter J. – Child Development, 2020
Interventions that train parents to share picture books with children are seen as a strategy for supporting child language development. We conducted meta-analyses using robust variance estimation modeling on results from 19 RCTs (N[subscript total] = 2,594; M[subscript child age] = 1-6 years). Overall, book-sharing interventions had a small sized…
