Abstract: Objective: To explore the relationship between screen time, paper reading time, and preschoolers’ emergent literacy skills during the transition to primary school and provide a basis for promoting emergent literacy development based on multimedia. Methods: A cross-sectional study was administrated in Shenzhen city in June 2018 . A representative sample of 1806 preschoolers in their senior year and their caregivers were recruited from 55 kindergartens by proportional stratified cluster sampling. Data were collected by caregiver-reported questionnaires, including the Early Human Capability Index (eHCi) and Children’s Media Use in Daily Family Life. Multiple linear regression models were used to analyze the effects of screen time, educational screen time, and paper reading time on children’s emergent literacy skills. Results: The screen time of kindergarten children was far more than paper reading time, and educational screen time accounted for nearly half of the total screen time. Screen time negatively predicted kindergarten children’s emergent literacy, while educational screen time and paper reading time positively predicted children's emergent literacy skills. Conclusion: Appropriate use of screen media for educational activities or paper reading might have a positive effect on children's emergent literacy skills.
