Talk about how the book you are reading reminds you of an experience you have had. Ask your child to tell you about an experience in the book that he/she has had or would like to have.
Ever wish you could find another book like the one you just finished? A great way to enjoy reading more is to read “partners” to books you like. What other books are similar in theme, author, or situation? This month features books that partner well together. After you finish some of these “partners,” ask your local librarian for help in finding “partners” to other past favorites. Be sure to ask for “partner” books for the entire family. Besides enjoying these books that go well together, try some of the library booklists listed here that lead you to similar books to those you’ve already enjoyed.
