Raise a Reader Tip #9

Welcome to my Raise a Reader series where I share weekly tips for encouraging early literacy!

Tip #9: Help your child to make connections between stories and real life.  Choose books that are relatable for your child.  Talk about parts of the story that connect with your child’s life.  Listen to your child’s ideas about the story.  Questions to ask, “Did that story remind you of anything?”  “What did that story make you think about?”
