Raven Tree Press Reading Tips for Parents, Primary Caregivers, and Educators Initial book activities
One of the easiest ways to begin telling the story of a book is through the use of illustrations. Most books for young children are illustrated in great detail, and noting the important details related to the characters, plot and setting will provide a wholesome first literacy activity.
Beginning reading–level activities
Children at this level should be encouraged to browse through books and pretend to read the story, an initial step toward becoming an independent reader. Children may tell the story to themselves or attempt to read frequently highlighted words.
