The article emphasizes the advantages of promoting emergent literacy and social-emotional learning through dialogic reading. Shared book reading is an interactive way of reading books aloud with children who give them an opportunity to be active participants in the reading session, thus providing a meaningful experience that stimulates learning. Dialogic reading relies on repeated readings of a story or book. It gives teachers a structure in which to ask meaningful questions that begin a conversation about what is happening in the story and help children comprehend the story.
