Family Forever: A Julia Storybook
A story celebrating the power of family…and friends!
As you share Julia’s story, consider highlighting ways to celebrate the importance of family and get the most from the story:
- Instead of reading the story from beginning to end without stopping, pause to answer—or ask—questions. Reread parts kids seem especially interested in, or challenge kids to act out parts of the story.
- As a family (or even as a class), make up a group cheer like Julia’s family has. Think of movements to go along with the cheer, and use it anytime the moment needs it.
- Sometimes Julia uses her “talker”—the device is her voice. Invite kids to think of ways to communicate without saying words out loud—for example, facial expressions, waving to say “hi,” or clapping to say “good job.”
