Reading Together - Part 2

Reading together creates unforgettable moments and shared experiences. We know that moments & experiences are often what binds a family or community together. Demonstrating your love of books and talking about what is happening in the story provides a space for meaningful conversations. This can shift your relationship from the day to day tasks of life to a deeper understanding of ourselves in the world.

Here are some questions to begin a discussion about the book:

  • Who is your favorite character and why? Who does it remind you of?

  • What would you do if you were faced with a similar situation?

  • What do you think will happen next?

  • How did this make you feel?

  • If we had a party with these characters, what music would we play? food to make? activities to do?

  • How would you change this story if you could?

  • What questions do you have now? Should we do some research for answers?

  • If someone else was narrating this book, who would you enjoy most? What would it sound like?

  • What do you think of the book cover? What about the title?
