Reading and telling stories to your child is very important. But don’t just stop there! It is also important that children understand what is going on in the story. This is known as narrative skills, and it will help your children all throughout their lives as they read and learn. During a story, ask your child about what is going on in the story and/or the pictures. After reading, help your child retell the story. Using props from around the house can be a fun way to do that.
