Studies in the Language Development Lab at Vanderbilt University explore how children learn new words.
For this study, we are interested in how 3-to 5-year-old children learn words from books and comprehend the storyline.
During the study children will be read stories by a researcher either from a print book or an electronic reader.
We are interested in when children learn information best from books and what types of reading styles are most supportive for learning new words as well as the story's narrative.
Children receive a toy or a book for taking part.
