Dialogic Reading is a technique that turns reading into an interactive process involving thought, imagination and discussion. It’s a shared reading experience that engages children directly by inviting questions, encouraging conversation, and shifting the roles of ‘reader’ and ‘listener’ so that children become storytellers as well. This process builds literacy skills by improving vocabulary, letter/number recognition, story comprehension and critical thinking skills.
