Asking questions will help your child to clarify his/her ideas and deepen his/her understanding.
Sharing your questions about a book with your child encourages him/her to ask questions.

While you are reading with your child, you might say...

  • I wonder what... | Je me demande...
  • I wonder why... | Je me demande pourquoi...
  • I don’t understand why... | Je ne comprends pas pourquoi...
  • What does this mean? | Qu’est-ce que ceci veut dire?
  • Why...? | Pourquoi... ?
  • How come...? | Pourquoi... ?
