Add Heart to Storytime
5 Big-Hearted Conversation Starters for Any Story (plus free printable cards!)
Listen carefully to your child’s responses, and allow the conversation to evolve naturally. Some days, this may lead to a super-silly “what if” conversation. Other days, you may find yourself answering big questions about hunger or hurt or loneliness.
Make story time special with these thought-provoking questions:
Did you like this book? Why or why not?
Did you notice that one of the characters was having a hard time with something? What was it?
What do you think about how they faced the situation and what they decided to do about it?
How do you think you would feel if you were in a similar situation?
What would you do if you had to solve a problem like the one the character in the book had to deal with?
Remember, there are no wrong answers. Every answer can lead you to new questions or conversation starters of your own.
