Read and Retell

Help!: A Story of FriendshipAfter reading a book with your child, talk about the story. Asking your child questions and reviewing the story will help your child learn narrative skills, which means the ability to describe things, talk about events, and tell or retell stories. For example, in the book, Help! A Story of Friendship by Holly Keller, you could ask what the characters thought of each other in the beginning of the story versus at the end of the story.
