dc.description.abstract Peruvian children’s sub-optimal results on international and national assessments underscore the need for enhanced investments in early childhood development (ECD) such as shared reading between caregivers and young children. We conducted a qualitative study with 13 mothers of young children ages 11–25 months old that: used focus groups to explore caregivers’ perspectives and experiences related to their daily activities, including reading and other ECD activities, with their young children; and used focus groups and video recordings to describe caregivers’ experiences reading with these children during an at-home opportunity for shared reading. The mothers described daily schedules that focused on taking care of their daily chores and making sure that their young children were busy as they carried out those tasks. The mothers reported that they did not designate dedicated time to spend with their children, and children were often without adult attention for lengthy periods of time. We found that after the 1-month at-home opportunity for shared reading, there was a definite positive shift in both mothers’ engagement with their children and their perspectives on reading. The caregivers improved their daily interactions with their children and observed important changes in their children thanks to reading. This study is encouraging and justifies a follow up randomized controlled trial to implement and evaluate the LIBRE shared reading program in Lima, Peru. en_US
