Create Turn the Page Stories
from A Grandpa's Notebook
by Meyer Moldeven
A grandmother told me how she
sometimes became part of a story to her
very young and distant grandchild. She wrote:
I audiotape the story and mail
the book to him along with the cassette,'
she wrote, 'but there's more to it than that. In
recording, when I get to the
end of a page, I talk about the illustrations on
that page, and then say
'turn the page'. He loves this part and tells his
Mom that he wants to
listen to Grandma's 'turn the page' book. When
children are too young
to read by themselves, they can follow along independently
when you tell
them-on the tape-when it's time to 'turn the page.'
