Children are quite willing to talk at length about many of their adventures. The taped conversations of the children were transcribed up to a cut-off point of 18 pages of transcript; the conversations of very few children exceeded this limit. An impressive total of 1124 narratives was produced. Only two children (a 4-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl) produced fewer than three narratives and were replaced by other children. The average number of narratives produced by the children is found in Table 2.
