Girl Chalkboard

We are currently inviting preschool children (ages 3-4.5) along with a parent/guardian to participate in a study of children's picture books. If you live in the South Bend area, then you are invited to participate! Participating children will first complete a few activities with one of our team members; then, they will look at two children's books with their parent/guardian. The session will take less than an hour.  At the end of the session, participants will choose a children’s book to take home with them, and they will receive a small payment to cover the costs associated with participation in the study (i.e., time and travel to the lab). We provide free on-campus parking and babysitting for siblings while you participate. If you and your child would like to participate, please email us at to schedule a time.


If you would like to receive our NEWSLETTER (sent out 3 times a year via email to share lab news, opportunities to participate, and summaries of key findings in the field), please email us:
