Several reading specialists have suggested that there is a positive relationship between conservation acquisition and successful learning of reading (Winkeljohann, 1974; Schwebel and Raph, 1973; and Raven and Salzer, 1971). Although the intuitive appeal of these suggestions is great, there is little evidence to support them. The purpose of this study was to ascertain the relationship between these two important characteristics of children.
