    Explanation
    In Frith's theory, between the ages of 6 and 7, children focus on visual images the most. This means that at this stage of development, children are primarily paying attention to and processing the visual aspects of reading, such as the letters, words, and illustrations on the page. They may be less focused on the author's intentions or the voice of the reader, and instead, their attention is directed towards the visual stimuli that accompany the text.

During this stage, children are able to comprehend more complex texts and use reading as a tool for gaining new knowledge in various subjects.

    Explanation
    Stage 1 of Frith's theory is the logographic stage, where children learn that letters are connected to sounds. This means that they begin to understand that each letter represents a specific sound in spoken language. During this stage, children start to recognize and associate letters with the sounds they make, which is a crucial step in learning to read and write.

      Grammar

    Correct Answer
    A. Rhyme and alliteration
    Explanation
    In the pre-reading stage, children recognize rhyme and alliteration the most. Rhyme refers to the repetition of similar sounds at the end of words, while alliteration is the repetition of initial consonant sounds in neighboring words. Both these literary devices help children develop phonological awareness, which is the ability to recognize and manipulate sounds in spoken language. Rhyme and alliteration make language more engaging and memorable for children, aiding in their early literacy development. They also help children notice patterns in language and develop their listening and speaking skills.
