Take turns making up a story like in the book, one person starting each sentence with the word "fortunately," and the other person starting each sentence with the word "unfortunately." Telling their own stories helps children understand how stories "work," which will help them stay motivated when they are learning to read. The book That’s Good, That’s Bad In the Grand Canyon uses the same idea!
