From Westbrook Literacy Coach - Mandy Freer

Whether your child is reading his/her own book or you are reading a book together, these are some questions you can ask your child to help them think deeper about their books. Kids love to talk about books, so encourage your child to share their thoughts, ideas and predictions as you read. These are helpful habits that we want to create in our readers!
