Book Talk

Book Talk

After you have read a book, discuss it with your child: why you liked it; what you would have done if you faced the same circumstances as the protagonist; are there aspects to the character which you can identify with; did the ending surprise you? Just easy musings – modeling that it’s natural to discuss what you read.

To engage your child in a discussion about one of their books, try, “Tell me about …,” keeping it informal. These conversations are a great opportunity to reveal as much as to learn.
