English Emergent readers are young children who are beginning their journey towards literacy; they enjoy shared reading both at school and at home, and maybe they are already able to read and write their own names. We involved emergent readers aged 4 to 6 years old and recruited through a local library, in a two-month long exploratory study, with weekly sessions in which they interacted with both traditional books and digital storytelling tools, engaging them in a series of activities to elicit their preferences, needs and wishes, following the formative evaluation approach. Basing our findings on direct observations, field notes and analysis of the recorded sessions, we found that tools explicitly designed for interaction trigger a higher level of engagement. Besides, we gained a deeper insight on how to conduct collaborative design sessions with small groups of emergent readers.
