Preschooler Reading Tips

When reading with your preschooler, choose books that provide opportunities for discussions between you and your child. Pretend and predict parts of the story. Preschoolers are able to sit and listen to longer stories.

Your preschooler is still building vocabulary and communication skills. Allow your preschooler to ask questions as well as answer your questions. It is a great time to connect parts of the story to things happening in your child's life.

Ask your child questions to demonstrate they understand the story. Who are the characters? Which one are you most like? Where did the story take place? Did you know that’s called the setting? What is taking place on this page? Would you do what the mouse did? Why not?
