When children enter school at the age of four, they are expected to differ in their experience with reading-aloud of picture books and stories. Experience with reading-aloud influences their further development. Therefore, insight in the amount of experience with reading-aloud is useful. Until now, there was no measurement instrument available for children in the age range of 4 to 6 years old. This paper describes the development, design and measurement qualities of such an instrument. The reliability of the so-called VLES-K is acceptable and there are a number of positive indications of the validity. However, continuation of development is needed to improve the VLES-K and to keep it up-to-date.
