Talking With Your Child About Books



Here are some prompts to help you as you chat with your child about books:

  1. Start the book by making predictions. What do you think will happen in this story?
  2. Ask questions and make comments during the reading process.
  3. After reading a book, have your child tell you the events from the story in the correct order.
  4. What was the problem in this story?
  5. How did the character feel when…?
  6. Encourage your child to make connections. Does this story remind you of another book you read, an event in your life, a movie?
