We are all wired to be storytellers. This means it’s easy to lay the foundations needed to understand and retell stories in your child from a young age. By reading together, your child learns to use descriptive words as well as the different parts of a story (beginning, middle, end). These narrative skills not only make reading more fun, but are crucial to your child becoming a life-long reader.
