Many children in preschool have speech and language disorders and a
poor communication development, and the need for support is
extensive. The aim was to find out if and how reading aloud and
storytelling could enhance children’s communication development, the
study was interactionistic. Eleven municipal preschools with 23 child
units (573 children) participated. A questionnaire containing 15
questions with 54 sub-items was answered on group level by the staff.
The results showed that reading aloud and storytelling was used
continuously, and the staff believed that the activity would help the
children to develop their communication both regarding speech and
development of concepts. But this is provided that the staff prioritize
literacy in preschool and have knowledge about how to use reading
aloud and storytelling to support children’s communication.
