We Both Read
We Both Read books are books that offer a unique shared reading format. These books are designed specifically to help foster and encourage parental involvement in reading. Each book offers an interactive format, in which a child takes turns reading aloud with a parent. The books invite the parent to read the left-hand pages. Then, for their turn, children are encouraged to read the right-hand pages, which feature less complex text and storyline, specifically leveled to their ability. The series presents a text format that includes modeling of fluent reading, repetition of key vocabulary on the child’s page, and shared and repeated reading. Students can check out books on a weekly basis to share and read with their parents.
