Getting Your Child Actively Involved With Books

"Active reading can help your child unlock the true power of text."

After reading a book does your child discuss it with you? Does she ask questions like why the author wrote it? Does she try to find similar characters or situations in her own life? Encourage your child to ask these questions and help her develop involvement with the text to reap more benefit of reading.
