Active Reading

Active reading involves reading a book with a child rather than reading a book to a child. Active reading works with children from as young as six months through sixth grade (for younger children you'll want to focus more on the pictures). This research-based approach improves children's language skills, vocabulary, and ability to understand what they read on their own.
