Acquisition of English Articles

Is there any literature on the acquisition of the English definite and indefinite articles by L1 children?

Have any systematic progressions been noted that might be helpful in explaining the psychology?

Examples of misuse of personal pronouns and verb forms are shown in the FAQ, do similar progressions happen with the use of articles.

Certainly they vex L2 learners of English!

Thanks in advance for any input.
