You can do the same thing at home when you and your child are sharing a book together:
- Ask questions about what is happening in the pictures and in the story.
- Relate the pictures to your child's own experiences. Ask questions to encourage conversation. You may answer for her, but always count to 5 to give her time to answer.
Dialogic Reading helps develop vocabulary and narrative skills. Research shows that the best effects come when you do it with a child one-on-one.
