Learn to Read Story: Reading with Expression 2

Use this story to practice reading expressively: the words/syllables in bold can be stressed. Of course, people choose to stress different words depending on their meaning--these are just suggestions. On the bold words/syllables, show your child how to change your voice a little bit--sometimes you can raise your pitch or speak the word a little louder or more slowly.
