Check out one of the Library’s videos or DVDs based on a picture book, such as the Weston Woods production of Leo the Late Bloomer by Robert Kraus. Talk with your child about what is happening in the story, how the main character is feeling, and other details. Read the book before or after watching the video/DVD and then see if your child can retell or act out the story. Children love to hear stories over and over again, which helps them develop narrative skills.
