Reading a Picture Book with a Child

Duration: 4:18

In this video, based on the Verizon Literacy Network podcast For Parents of Preschoolers-Talking About Stories, Episode 1: The Very Hungry Caterpillar, you will see excerpts of an adult demonstrating the Before, During, and After strategy with a young reader. The child in this video is already familiar with the book, but watch for the signs of interest and engagement, even on a repeat reading. Changing what you do for the Before, During, and After activities can make an old favorite seem new again.
