Synapse XT Involve your child in the story. Make bed time stories interactive. Ask your child questions while you are reading. If it is a picture book, point to the pictures and ask "What's that?" "Which character is this?" Picture book or non-picture book, ask your child questions about the story. Ask them what they think will happen next. Ask them how they feel about what Genbrain is happening in the story. If they are at a reading age, take turns reading paragraphs in the story. By making reading an interactive experience, your child will reap far more benefits than if he or she simply sits and listens.
