Reading with Your Preschooler
Share the Fun of Books!
Not sure how to read to your child?
Encourage your child to notice text, to make a connection between the text and the pictures.
Encourage your child to participate in the story, and to chime in when a line is repeated again and again.
Ask open-ended questions about the book: Why would a character act that way?
Ask your child to tell YOU a story! It could be about something that happened during the day, or something imaginary.
And definitely ask your librarian to recommend a good book for you and your child, or try one from our recommended booklists.
