Select about five to ten pictures from your favorite magazine for children and mark the pages with small sticky notes. Then one at a time select a picture and talk about it together. If your child does not have much to say about a particular picture, give your opinion. Then, when it starts to feel natural, ask some open-ended questions like these:

    • Who is in the picture?
    • What are they doing?
    • Where are they?
    • When is this taking place?
    • Why are the children so happy, sad, angry, etc.?
