Children love dramatic play of all types. They like to dress up, play pretend, and act out movies and stories. You can use the natural drama of a child to allow them opportunities to respond to reading instead of using art or discussions. Dress like a Book Character Children who enjoy drama will like to dress up as their favorite character in the story
When a child reads a book whether it is fiction or nonfiction, they should respond to what they have read in some way. A fun way to respond to is through art. Children will look forward to the pleasure of completing a fun project after they have finished a book or story. Painting the Setting Have your child describe the setting of the book.
