A book introduction is defined by Holdaway as “a brief and lively discussion in which the teacher interests the children in the story and produces an appropriate setting for reading it” (1979)

In introducing stories to children, you might:

  • Draw on the child’s experience.
  • Leave room for the child to bring their experiences to bear on the story.
  • Explain important ideas and concepts.
  • Discuss the plot or theme of the whole story.
  • Say (and sometimes have children repeat) language patterns that are unfamiliar and are critical to the story.
  • Talk about the meaning of the whole story.
  • Have the child retell the story in their own words, with prompting for more detail.
