  • BORN READING: STORYTIME TIPS FROM GREAT READERS
  •  Numerous studies have shown that interactive reading—active engagement with a child during the reading experience—can raise a child’s IQ by more than six points.  In Born Reading: Bringing Up Bookworms in a Digital Age, I distilled interactive reading techniques into a simple “Born Reading Playbook” for parents. BORN READING
  • While writing Born Reading, I interviewed teachers, librarians, child development experts, neuroscientists and many other professionals. This slideshow collects interactive reading tips from some of the best readers I met on my journey.
  • Tip # 1 from author Sara Gillingham: Ask questions & have the child point to objects they know
  •  In Rebecca O'Connell’s book, a baby goes through the motions of a normal day.  These bright illustrations offer plenty of opportunities to point to objects inside the book. PRACTICE: “THE BABY GOES BEEP”
  • Tip #2 from Reading Rainbow’s LeVar Burton: Remember how to play like a child
  • PRACTICE: “PLEASE, BABY PLEASE”  Movie director Spike Lee and producer Tonya Lewis Lee evoke the frustration and joy of a toddler.  Kadir Nelson’s gorgeous pictures will help kids describe and talk about feelings.
  • Tip #3 from comic book creator Stan Lee: Act out scenes from their favorite books
  • Mo Willems’ “Let’s Go for a Drive” is filled with interactive dialogue. Try using different voices for characters, imitating facial expressions and jumping around the room like Elephant and Piggie. PRACTICE: “LET’S GO FOR A DRIVE”
  • Tip #4 from Poet Nikki Giovanni: Whether you enjoy poetry, storytelling or hip hop, share it with the kids in your life.
  •  Giovanni edited this anthology of hip hop for kids. It includes work by Langston Hughes, the Sugar Hill Gang, Kanye West, Gwendolyn Brooks and more… “HIP HOP SPEAKS TO CHILDREN”
  • Tip #5 from author Mo Willems: Draw with your kids
