**Literal question**

How many children's books or picture books do you have for [NAME]?

**Interviewer instructions**

This question asks specifically about children's books or picture books for the child. This excludes schoolbooks (appropriate for or belonging to older children). Those books for older children and adults are already included in the previous question, CE1. Record the number of books in the space provided. There is no need to make an actual count of books yourself. If the respondent is unsure about the number of children's books or picture books and is not able to provide an answer the first time you ask the question, ask her/him if there are more than 10 such books. If yes, circle '10'. If she/he says that there are less than 10 such books, probe further to get an exact number. If there are no such books in the household, record '00'.
