How to Read a Story
How to Read a Story | Kate Messner
8 posts | 8 read | 5 to read
Step One: Find a story. (A good one.) Step Two: Find a reading buddy. (Someone nice.) Step Three: Find a reading spot. (Couches are cozy.) Now: Begin. Accomplished storytellers Kate Messner and Mark Siegel chronicle the process of becoming a reader: from pulling a book off the shelf and finding someone with whom to share a story, to reading aloud, predicting what will happen, andfinallycoming to The End. This picture book playfully and movingly illustrates the idea that the reader who discovers the love of reading finds, at the end, the beginning.

#LilithJuly Day 5: This is the perfect book to introduce storytelling and reading aloud to young readers – it would also do for a good start-of-year book with explicit step-by-step instructions on how one should go about reading #TheStory. It is a good first step in finding out which books might potentially speak to a child – and seeing that spread of books makes my bookish heart leap with joy. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-b0X

Having written the noted book above, Rolling Thunder by Kate Messner illustrated by Greg Ruth is a wonderful tribute to the memorial day bike parade that takes place to honor our service men present and past. Having been born on Memorial Day in 1972, this book is a powerful reminder of the sacrifices made for us all.

DrSpalding @Ashleywwolfe you are correct and national holidays fall under the Social Studies curriculum! 🙂 5y
Ashleywwolfe @DrSpalding - anything to get those social studies in! 👏 5y

I cleaned out my kids' closet and my daughter immediately turned part of it into her own reading nook. 😂 I had plans but I hate to take it apart! #raisingreaders
