A fundamental part of dialogic reading is its cyclical pattern. Parents read a section, ask the child to respond, discuss their response, and then repeat the process. This pattern makes the reading session a dynamic exchange, promoting imagination, active listening, and verbal expression.

Character exploration is a key component of dialogic reading. Ask your child questions that help them understand the characters’ emotions, motivations, or reactions. “Why do you think the bear is sad?” or “What would you do if you were in the rabbit’s place?” These questions not only deepen your child’s comprehension but also build empathy, as they learn to understand perspectives different from their own.
