ABSTRACT
Adult read aloud book activities, including literature selections, have significant impact on children’s language learning opportunities. The style in which books are orally shared with children is also important. Detailed examination of adult-child book reading conversations has demonstrated a variety of teaching and learning approaches in the empirical and popular literature. Three of these approaches are included in this article: didactic-interactional, co-construction, and performance-oriented styles (Dickinson & Smith, 2004). Ten children’s books are reviewed and recommended.
