Can't find your favorite book?

by Babs Hadjusiewicz December 06, 2013

Can't find your favorite book? You have no idea where it is. WOW!

How do you read aloud when you can't find the book your child craves to hear again and again?

Try this-

Ask questions about that favorite book's story, its characters, its pictures, its action, its colors:

Why can’t the bus go?

Why does everyone have to wait?

Do you remember who drives the tractor in that book?

Which vehicle helps the monkey go?

The giraffe?

Who’s the passenger in the pig’s car?

Such questioning helps your young talker focus. Invite your child to ask you some questions about that book. This activity gives the two of you the feeling of having just “read aloud” that favorite book, but in a whole new way. And look at all the important comprehension practice your child did: To THINK in order to recall details; to TALK in order to ask and answer questions; to THINK in order to recall details in order; to TALK and be a LEADER in order to ask questions of you. Lots of important work your child has experienced...and all in the fun of playing with you and language!
