Ready to Read: Reading

Reading together helps children learn how books work. Shared reading also helps children develop an interest in reading and want to learn to read themselves.
  • Make shared reading interactive. Have your children turn the pages. Talk about the pictures as you read and ask questions that encourage your children to talk more. When you finish the book, ask your children to tell you about the story. 
  • Books use words that children don’t hear in everyday conversations. As you read, talk about what the words mean.
  • Point to words and letters. Name the letters and make their sounds.
  • Read to your children in the language that is most comfortable for you so that you can talk about the book more.
