Pick a book with lots of dialogue and divide the reading according to character. (You can read the narration if this keeps the pace.) Or check out the free scripts available online at Reader's Theater. Ask your child to read with extreme expression and you follow suit. Explore how much you can add to a story just by changing your intonation. Have fun doing this throughout the book, expressing fear, glee, boredom, etc.
