Young children like to copy what others do. After you read your
child a story, she may pretend to read it by:
- turning pages, pointing to and talking about the pictures
- turning pages and saying words that sound like reading
- turning pages and retelling the story
- turning pages and remembering some of the words from the story.
Most children pretend to read long before they learn to read.
Pretend reading helps them learn about reading.
