LuCiD’s latest 2-page evidence briefing summarises the evidence for the role of shared book-reading in children’s language development in the early years (0-5 years). The briefing, put together by Prof Caroline Rowland, Dr Claire Noble, Dr Jamie Lingwood and Anna Coates from the University of Liverpool, covers book reading situations in which an adult and child, or group of children, sit down to share books together. This is the third in a series of evidence briefings we have compiled. All of our briefing documents are available in open access via our website.
