Abstract: The purpose of the study was to determine the difference in concept perception in preschool children using story reading through several different media presentations. Specifically, it was to ascertain if significant differences did exist in concept perception of children ranging in age from 3 years 6 months to 5 years 6 months under three different methods of presentation: adult story reader present and reading story, filmstrip and cassette, and cassette recorder alone. Three stories were selected for the investigation with consideration being given to comparable content and length of the stories. All stories depicted the seasons and involved plants, animals, and human beings. Three trained professionals with earned degrees in the areas of child development or in child psychology evaluated the stories for appropriateness. A questionnaire and scoring scale was devised by the investigator and were evaluated by the three trained professionals.
