• Click here: Houston Public Library to go to the Houston Public Library kids page.  Then click on TUMBLEBOOK LIBRARY to access lots of online stories for free.  Many of the stories have fun games for the kids to play (while secretly working on their language skills).  While reading these stories with your children have them tell you about:
    • Who is in the story?
    • Where are they?
    • When is it taking place?
    • What's happening? (more than one thing?)
    • The problem
    • The solution
    • The main idea
    • The feelings of the characters. Why do they feel that way?
    • What do you think will happen?
    • Personal Connections
    • Have them retell you the story.
