Here are just a few good reasons to pair your reading sessions with an activity:

it can motivate a child to read; after doing an activity, a child may be more interested in reading the book again and again, or other books on the topic.

it helps to build connections between a child's knowledge base and new learning

it helps with the transfer of knowledge; learning concepts and skills in different contexts will help your child transfer his knowledge from one situation to another

it aids learning through repetition of concepts and ideas 

Need some ideas for a book-based activity that can build early learning concepts or emergent literacy? Here are some posts that will keep you learning while you are having fun.
