Abstract [en]

The aim of the paper is to study how three children interact while reading a book together. Using video recordings as data, I explore not only verbal but also non-verbal interaction – i.e. gaze, pointing, and body posture – and how the children use all these interactional resources when reading together. An important aspect of the study is the way I see the book as an artifact and I study how the children use the book as a resource in their interaction. To do this I use a conversation analytic (CA) approach, drawing on the work by Charles Goodwin (see for example 1980, 1999, 2000).

The video recordings are made within a research project studying the consequences of the introduction of the preschoolclass in Sweden.
