, 2019, master's thesis
Abstract: Reading is a very important part of our lives. As children, we encounter reading through picture books, and later we reach for more demanding texts. The child is becoming literate at reading, which is very important, and reading can also be a starting point for socializing – parents reading together with their children, socializing in book clubs, reading for a reading badge, etc. By reading, children do not only become proficient in reading, but they enrich their speaking skills. Speech, develop their imagination, gain a new source of information, become more versatile and more easily manage different situations. In all this, we should not forget that reading must always be a fun activity, not a constraint or exertion for a child or a student, and that motivation for reading is extremely important.
In the master's thesis, I want to highlight the characteristics of reading and reading comprehension, by doing a more detailed analysis of the parts of course books that are designed to develop reading skills, and analyzing the survey, which will reflect students' view of reading comprehension in elementary school.
Keywords: Reading, reading comprehension, reading literacy, course books.
