1. Easy books, books a child has read before, and old favorites are most appropriate.
  2. Reading aloud is great practice.
  3. Echo Reading. The adult reads a paragraph, sentence, or phrase and the child reads the same section afterwards, like an echo. Some readers can manage echo reading a full paragraph. Others can manage only a phrase.
  4. Books on tape.
  5. Read from a comic book and mimic how the character may speak the part.
