Abstract [en]

Previous studies have shown that children as young as 5 years of age are able to form abasic understanding of evolution after listening to a storybook about natural selection.This study offers a semiotic exploration of children’s meaning making during an interactiveread aloud of the same storybook by investigating what children focus on andnegotiate during the read aloud. Video data from eight interactive read aloud sessions(N = 24 children) were analysed using a multimodal approach and contrasted with sevenbiological concepts intentionally described in the storybook. During the interactivereading, the children focused on all biological concepts at some point. However, apartfrom the biological concepts, the children also paid attention to other topics during theread aloud. These topics comprised Death, Change in behaviour, Realism, Babies, Millibugs, and Aesthetics. Throughout the read aloud, a child-centric view of life influencedhow the children made meaning about evolution. The findings highlight that throughinteractive reading, instructional storybooks also become a tool for discussing otheraspects that children find important. Overall, the findings contribute with knowledgeabout the role of interactive read aloud as a pedagogical tool for introducing evolution inearly childhood education.
