Q. Why do you have different people reading the same story?

A. Discussion. Children enjoy talking about the different versions of the stories. They like to say which reader they liked best. They talk about the stories more than they would if they heard them once. If you give a child stories on a regular cassette tape, they may listen to them five or six times. Children will often listen to these stories over a hundred times, and they’ll discuss them with their friends and parents. Want proof? Ask your child which story they liked best. Then, ask them which reader they liked best and why. You’re in for an interesting discussion.
