How To Read a Story (Kate Messner)

There is no better book to read the first day you start Reading Buddies!! My class loved the step by step instructions and totally agreed with many of the points along the way: reading outside is wonderful, snuggle up together, read with great expression, say "the end" when you're finished, and if it's really good, start all over again!

Loved it!

Kate Messner totally gets kids and books.

Goodreads summary:

Step One: Find a story. (A good one.)
Step Two: Find a reading buddy. (Someone nice.)
Step Three: Find a reading spot. (Couches are cozy.)
Now: Begin.
Accomplished storytellers Kate Messner and Mark Siegel chronicle the process of becoming a reader: from pulling a book off the shelf and finding someone with whom to share a story, to reading aloud, predicting what will happen, and—finally—coming to The End. This picture book playfully and movingly illustrates the idea that the reader who discovers the love of reading finds, at the end, the beginning.
