Attitude towards reading, elementary school, fourth graders


This study aims to investigate attitudes towards reading of fourth graders. The research was carried out in the survey model. The scale was applied to 415 students and 385 valid data were obtained. In analyzing the data, descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA and correlation tests were used. Analysis of the data showed that students had a strong reading attitude, females had a higher reading attitude than males, and parent reading culture made meaningful differences in children's reading attitudes. In the pre-school period, taking newspapers, magazines, reading and writing materials; reading stories to children; visiting bookstores, book fairs, and libraries with children made significant differences in children’s attitude towards reading. A moderate and positive relationship between attitudes towards reading and the number of books read outside of the course book in one year.
