Ways to talk to your child about stories.

· Ask your child to predict what might happen next while reading a story. Be sure to ask your child to give reasons for the prediction.

· Ask your child why a character might have taken a specific action. Again, ask for the reasons behind the answer.

· Ask your child to compare a book to another familiar book. How are the characters alike or different? Do the stories take place in similar places? How are the illustrations similar or different?

· Ask what part of the story your child liked best and why.

· Ask whether your child liked the ending of the story and why or why not.
