Abstract

Title/author checklists are a reliable and valid method of measuring young children’s exposure to
storybooks. Early storybook exposure is robustly associated with concurrent oral language; a
correlation between storybook exposure and concurrent pre-literacy skills was observed for typically
developing children, but not for children at elevated risk of reading difficulty.
