Would you like your child to participate in our Children’s Storybook Study? The study takes 30 minutes and is completed over zoom. We are interested in how 5-to-8 year olds remember the details from storybooks with either expected or unexpected endings. Children will play 3 memory games with a researcher over Zoom—a counting game, a picture game, and a storybook game. In the counting game, children will hear and recite a series of numbers (e.g., 123). In the picture game, children will see and label pictures of a sun and moon as either “night” or “day”. Finally, in the storybook game, children will view 6 picture ebook stories about different cartoon characters with different endings.  Then they will answer some questions about each story. Compensation for this study is $5.

Eligibility: Children ages 5 to 8 years who live in the U.S. and speak English.
