When you read eBooks with your child, you engage in a shared interactive experience that allows you to participate in your child's learning. Whether you are reading the stories aloud or listening to a narrated version, you can take advantage of the rich opportunity to talk with your child about the story and ask open-ended questions, such as, "What do you think will happen next?" My son Lucas and I love to read eBooks that build and expand on his interests!
