The importance of reading aloud for childrens development of language (English)
Abstract [en]

The main thing we wanted to find out with this thesis was, can reading aloud help the natural language development. We also wanted to know how libraries in Sweden work with reading aloud and if children with reading and writing problems are being helped by being read to. We also wanted to find out what authoritarians on literature think a good reading-aloud novel should contain. To find this out we decided to do a literature study, we have taken part of a number of authoritarian opinions on this matter and we also studied some theories on this subject. We also decided to do a couple of interviews to exemplify how regular libraries work with reading aloud. The theories we worked with were foremost Piagets and Vygotskijs theories of cognitive and language development. We used these theories to develop our point of view on the matter of language development and to enlighten the result we got through our literature studies and interviews. What we found was that a number of factors is to be considered when it comes to language development, and that reading aloud through imitation could be an important part of it. We also found that most libraries around Sweden have some sort of project developed to increase reading in their cities and to spread the joy of reading and reading aloud. What a good reading aloud novel should contain is very difficult to say, it is very individual. Different people need and want different things from the books they read, although the cognitive and emotional level of the children should be considered when choosing books for them. We think the subject of our thesis is very important because parents tend to spend less time with their children today than they did earlier.
