Shared Storybook Reading

Elizabeth Dennison
 

You really know you're a mother when it takes you an hour and a half to read a 12-page book


Shared storybook reading with caregivers is one of the first and most important book experiences of children with visual impairments. It can be a wonderful way for parents or caregivers to enjoy an activity together, while also helping the child to develop important skills.


Shared Storybook Reading helps children acquire:

  • oral language
  • phonological awareness
  • concept development
  • knowledge of the conventions of print/Braille and of print/braille intentionality, and alphabetic knowledge
     

Caregivers’ Roll in Fostering a Love of Reading:

  • Read to the child everyday and start as early as possible.
  • Sing nursery rhymes and children’s songs.
  • Treat books as though they are special.
  • Let the child make their own book with real objects and add braille.
  • Read with expression.
  • Let the child see you reading.
  • Keep books out and available on a low shelf where the young child can find them.
  • Practice turning pages together and placing the book right side up. Find page numbers. Talk about reading left to right.
  • Explore tactile books.


Shared Storybook Tips:

  • Select a time when the child is happy and read in a comfortable location.

  • Read in a dramatic voice that makes the book exciting and add noises related to the story.

  • Read only for as long as the child is interested — a few minutes is OK.

  • Let children help turn the pages, even if a few pages are skipped.

  • Point to the print or run fingers over the braille as the book is read.

  • Discuss pictures, illustrations, and story objects.

  • As you read, pause to recall what happened before or to talk about what might happen next.

  • Stop to ask questions then think through answers together.

  • Relate the book to children’s and family’s experiences.

  • Talk about unfamiliar words.

  • If the child can see them, talk about what is happening in the pictures. Share your opinions of the story.
