We are always looking for chapter books that appeal to our 6-year-old twin boys for shared book reading.

Looking to amplify learning from shared book reading? Here is a research-based strategy to explicitly teach vocabulary, it’s called Text Talk. I use this with my kids, preschoolers, and Kindergarteners. It’s easy and fun, the kids eat it up!
