Description The ability of children to predict the mental state of others (theory of mind) is very important in socialization. Reading storybooks can connect children with the views, desires, and beliefs of others. This study aims to determine the effect of reading storybooks on the development of Theory of Mind (ToM) children aged 4-5 years. The measurement of ToM uses the ToM scale developed by Wellman and Liu, and reading a storybook is measured using a questionnaire. The research subjects were 145 children aged 4-5 years (48-71 months, M = 60.38, SD = 5.41) and their parents. Sampling was done using the purposive sampling technique. Test the research hypothesis using simple regression analysis. The results of the study found that R = 0.109, R2 = .012, p> 0.05, meaning that reading storybooks did not significantly affect the development of ToM in preschool children.
