Make Predictions About a Book Before You Begin Reading

We don't just make predictions as we read; we make predictions even before we begin reading. So the next time you start a new book with your child, take a moment to ask him what he thinks the book will be about. What are his predictions based on? The image on the front cover? The words on the back? The recommendation of a friend? As you read the book together, refer back to the predictions he made from the start and compare them to the actual plot.
