ABSTRACT
This study examined the ways in which families from diverse cultural backgrounds support their children's literacy development through story book sharing. There were 35 parents videotaped while sharing a narrative with their 3- or 4-year-old children. The sample consisted of East Asian Canadians, South Asian Canadians, Mexican Canadians, European Canadians, and First Nations or Native American people. Videotapes were transcribed in their entire zy and parent-chiki interactions were coded using a mod(tied scheme by Shapiro, Anderson, and Anderson (1997). The types of gestures, statements, and questions by parents and children were used in the analysis. Many low level cognitive demands characterized the types of parent-child interactions. However parents engaged in scaffolding to support their children's literacy development.
