The research by Brodin and Renblad titled, ‘Improvement of preschool children’s speech and language skills (2019)’ shows that there is a relationship between reading and oral language skills as vocabulary, how to form sentences from word combinations and paying attention to the meaning of words or sentences. Conclusively, these aspects form part of reading comprehension and word recognition. Parent-child literacy development skills stimulate young learner’s oral language skills. Wright (2019) replicates the findings of Brodin and Renblad (2019) adding that children can learn new words and meanings when reading aloud with their parents as they grow their vocabulary knowledge. The literature searches also pointed out that mediatized reading aloud involves exposing children to sophisticated texts that they never come across in their daily lives and activities because they are rarely spoken. Thus, mediatized reading aloud will develop the language skills of children as compared to toy play or any other interaction with an adult.
