    This book is designed to help teachers, special education specialists and speech-language pathologists achieve two objectives: 1) how to interact with children around books in ways that are instructive in nature but also responsive to children's verbal contributions; and 2) how to use literature, informational texts and poetry to achieve the goals common to most modern curricula, including the Australian Curriculum. The authors provide specific recommendations for structuring read aloud routines in the early childhood classroom, making the read aloud interactive, using instructional strategies that enhance children's vocabulary and content knowledge, and extending children's verbal contributions.
