5 Multiple choice questions

  1. Do not wait until you think that your children are "old enough" to read for themselves to start reading to them out loud. Continue reading to them until they are at least 10 years old. Children continue to beniefit from listening to others read long after they have learned to read for themselves.
  2. If you think that the book is boring, then the children will know. You must read it all first.
  3. Unless you are dramatically gifted, long stories can be hard to read out loud.
  4. Keep the children engaged. Discuss the illustrations, on the cover, and on each of the pages. Ask them "What do you think this is going to be about?" "What do you think is going to happen?" And keep them involved by asking them every so often, "What do you think is going to happen next?"
  5. Reading to fast!!!! Make sure that you read slowly enough for the child to build mental pictures of what you just read. Slow down so that the child can see the pictures. Reading too fast leaves no time for the reader to use vocal expression.
