The Best Way to Read Aloud to a Child

Dialogic Reading - Tammy Kofford

This forty-three minute video is for parents and educators of children who are 3-6 years of age. This instructional 45 minute session for parents and teachers of young children "The Best Way to Read Aloud to a Child" was developed around the research work of Dr. Grover J. (Russ) Whitehurst. Whitehurst developed a process called dialogic reading and then studied its effectiveness.


Dialogic reading –carrying on a dialog as you read with a young child – quickly develops the crucial language skills necessary for a child to learn the nuances of listening and learning from the language in a narrative or expository book. For years research has emphasized the importance of reading aloud to children, however, before dialogic reading, most didn’t know there was a considerably more effective way of reading a book to a child than reading it from cover to cover with an expressive voice.


“Sixty-six percent of school age children are failing to learn to read proficiently in Kansas by fourth grade. Fourth grade is the year where children are no longer learning to read, but rather are reading to learn. We all have a responsibility to do what we can to improve this life-threatening set of circumstances.”
