Book Sharing Tips

(Suggestions of the American Library Association)

• Find a comfortable place to sit.

• Turn off other distractions — television, radio or stereo.

• Hold the book so that your child can see the pages clearly.

• Involve your child by having him or her point out objects, talk about the pictures or repeat common words.

• Read with expression.

• Vary the pace of your reading.

• Have your child select books to read.

• Reread your child’s favorite books whenever asked.

• Recite or sing rhymes from your favorite books.

• Make reading a habit — before bedtime, after lunch, after nap.
