Understanding the most important points and key details presented in the two texts on the same topic are important skills that help your child understand what they are reading. When reading together: Ask what was similar between the two texts. Ask what was different about the two texts. Brainstorm with your child and see if you can come up with other resources on the same topic that could help further what you can learn on the topic.
Reading to learn is so much fun when families and friends can share reading time together. Selecting nonfiction books can help instill a love of learning for a lifetime!
