Pages cannot be turned until your child hears the entire narration, which promotes concentration and comprehension
Research has demonstrated that the most effective read-alouds are those in which children are actively involved asking and answering questions and making predictions rather than passively listening (Dickinson 2001).
Research shows that the seeds of reading and school success are sown in the home, long before the child ever arrives at school.

You TELL Me Stories were created by educators and language experts to show you HOW to you read to your child to make a meaningful difference. Studies prove that the best way to develop a strong foundation for all future reading, writing and speaking skills is by having your child listen to you read while you encourage him or her to think and talk about the story.
