Calling all Budding Thespians
Children's books from around the house
Instead of simply reading your child's favorite book again, make it interactive. Let him/her choose a page or scene from the book and act it out. For example, my son loves construction equipment, so he goes through his books and tells me to be one of the bulldozers and he pretends to be one of the dump trucks. We crawl around on the floor and pretend to scoop up dirt with our hands and then sit upright as if to dump it out.
