Engage with reading, even after ‘The End’

Posted on

Some of the best reading times come after you’ve closed the book. After reading aloud with your child, ask her to retell the story in her own words. Help her make connections between the book and her own life. Has she ever felt like any of the characters in the story? If the story is set in a real place, get out a map or a globe and locate it together. Thinking and talking about books enriches her reading experience.
