The purpose of this study is to obtain a better understanding of the nature and presence of the imagery that children have while reading silently, and to determine the relationship of this imagery to the comprehension of the material read. In this study mental imagery is defined as the perceptions in the imagination which accompany reading. This includes auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory, and gustatory imagery as well as visual imagery. Comprehension is defined for this study as the ability to score on the tests accompanying the reading selections.
