Steps for Reading Together

  1. Let your child choose the book.
  2. Find a comfortable place to read.
  3. Talk about the book first. Ask questions like:  “What do you think this book is about?” and “Do you like the picture on the front cover?”
  4. Read with lots of expression and enthusiasm.
  5. Ask your child to help you read.  Fade your voice when you come to a repetitive phrase.
  6. Talk to your child while you read to them.  Ask them questions about the story.
  7. Have fun!
