Book Activities

Books stand on their own as art and entertainment, and sometimes the best approach is simply to read a book and savor it. In other cases, discussing the book enriches the experience. But it can also be fun to pair books with activities such as crafts, trips, cooking, and more. Most of the following ideas are geared toward picture-story books and biographies, but reading a novel together can also lead to shared activities. Some of the nonfiction books, in fact, contain activities, such as science experiments, crafts, magic tricks, and more. Brainstorm with your child about other possibilities, with the goal, as always, to make reading a wonderful experience.
