Point them in the right direction...
Did you know that 95% of children’s attention goes to the pictures in the book?
When you’re reading, use your finger (or a pointer) to sweep under words you have read. It will show the child that you are reading the text, not the pictures.
Here are some great ideas for pointers you can use.
**Flyswatters** (with different sized holes)
***Old Wooden Spoons**
**Old Car antennae**
Does anyone have any other suggestions?
