This paper examined the effect of adopting PowerPoint on students' motivation and reading comprehension. In this study, Two shared story reading lessons were taught using the big book and two were accompanied by PowerPoint multimedia. For the purpose of triangulation, three data collections techniques were used in this study. The first instrument used was classroom observations which was conducted to assess students' motivation during the lessons. The second instrument used was reading comprehension tests which were administered after each lesson to assess students' comprehension level. The third instrument was self-reported questionnaire which was administered at the end of the shared story reading process including closed- and open-ended questions to see students' views and feelings about the PowerPoint and big book lessons. This study found that the students were highly motivated for the PowerPoint lessons than for the big book lessons. It was also found that the students' performance on the reading comprehension tests after the PowerPoint lessons was better than after the big book lessons. In addition, it was found that the students had positive views about the way of presenting stories using PowerPoint. However, it must be noted that the students' motivation during the big book lessons was not low, and in both cases the average scores of the reading comprehension tests were quite low.
