Since little kids learn best by DOING, then try to act out stories as you read!
I love the book "Clap Your Hands" by Cauley since you can easily do everything you read.
I adore Karen Katz books. One time while reading "Grandma & Me" we baked cookies in the oven!
While reading the "Daddy & Me" book I pull out Brayden's toolbox and have him find each of the tools on each page. One day we made the little "dog house" out of a shoebox and decorated it.
These books are great to follow and act out in read life. This is just really fun and also helps their comprehension.
