For children, the problems of predicting and understanding plans are the biggest obstacles in reading. They are also big obstacles when children watch a movie, and when they observe what their parents are doing. Adults have developed the ability to follow complex plans, and they have learned cues by which to identify each other's plans. Without information about the kinds of plans there are, how can a child understand that when a character in a movie goes to the perfume store and he is in love, it means one thing, but if he is very angry and goes to the liquor store, it means another?
