Abstract

This article aims to investigate primary school children`s attitude toward reading using The Elementary Reading Attitude Survey (McKenna & Kear, 1990). A number of 106 Romanian students from 4th grade participated in this study. The results showed a rather positive attitude towards reading, both in recreational and academic reading. The data did not indicate differences in attitude toward reading between boys and girls. 12.26% of the students showed high negative attitudes on both subscales. Only a few students with atypical profiles (very high scores in one type of reading, and very low scores in the other) were identified.
