Even as your child is still learning to read, a major skill under the Common Core Standards is to “describe characters, settings, and major events in a story, using key details.” Reading these first grade books together and then watching a movie version is a wonderful way to get your child thinking about character and setting details. Ask questions like, What happened in the Paddington movie that didn’t happen in the book? What is the town of Chewandswallow like in the book compared to how it looks in the movie?
