Winter has arrived here in Connecticut. It is snowy and cold and perfect for curling up with a good book. It is also a great time to encourage your young reader to practice important comprehension skills such as retelling, identifying the main idea and making connections.  After your child reads a book, ask him one of these questions/activities to build vital reading and thinking skills.

*  Give the book a new title. Tell why you chose it.

*  What part of the story would you change? Explain why.

*  Retell the story in your own words.

*  Tell about three important events from the story.

* Why do you think the author wrote this story?

* Compare two characters in the story. List their similiarities and differences.

*  Tell about a part in the story that reminds you of something in your own life.

Happy reading!!
