My 2011 paper (Horst et al., Frontiers), in which I tested children’s word learning from storybooks has inspired two intervention programs at the local community level: Again!

(Durham Local Authority and Durham Children’s Centres) and Over and Over (Hampshire County Council and Haven Children’s Centre). Both projects encourage parents and nursery staff to repeatedly read the same books to children. Both projects have reported improved concentration among children and increased interest in reading stories (e.g., Haven Ofsted Inspection Report, 2013).
