ABSTRACT
All early experiences with books have a powerful influence on a child's later success in learning to read. Reading aloud, in particular, provides a wonderfully intimate setting for a child to learn new words, talk about her feelings toward the characters in a book, and how the story might relate to common experiences in her life. It is less well-known, however, that parent-and-child conversations about books can help a child develop the ability to think abstractly to do what is known as representational thinking.
