Repeat After Me

Where Does the Butterfly Go When It Rains?When reading picture books to children, it is important to show them that you are reading the words in the book and not pictures. One way to do this is by running your finger under the title and/or the repeated phrases in a book. For example, in the book Where Does the Butterfly Go When It Rains? by May Garelick, the title phrase is repeated every few pages. Point to this phrase and have your child say it with you. This will help your child become more aware of the print in the book.
