How does shared book-reading help boost child language development in the early years?

LuCiD’s latest 2-page evidence briefing summarises the evidence for the role of shared book-reading in children’s language development in the early years (0-5 years). The briefing, put together by Prof Caroline Rowland, Dr Claire Noble, Anna Coates and I covers book reading situations in which an adult and child, or group of children, sit down to share books together.
