This investigation is aimed at defining and checking educational strategies to foster children comprehension of pictures, i.e. at developing, implementing and evaluating a research-based training for enhancing the pre-schoolers’ abilities to read and comprehend pictures ( like these we find in illustrated books), and especially to recognise the actions the characters are performing, and the activities in which they are engaged.The training project was based on 3 main resources: a) the use of pictures which present children with specific comprehension tasks ; b) the instructional use of asking the children for verbalising their own visual exploration (Kunen and Duncan 1983); c) and the use of a special feedback which consists of accurately reformulating all children’s speech acts (Lumbelli 1996). The results (from 30 children 5 year olds children), show that it is possible to foster children’s pictures comprehension ability. The investigation also contributed to define new criteria for picture comprehension assessment.
