Reading with expression, proper intonation, and phrasing. This helps readers to sound as if they are speaking the part they are reading. It is also this element of fluency that sets it apart from automaticity.
So that the dreams are sweet and the body relaxed - the bedtime routine is bath, stories, prayers, and then night night. Precious time is spent just on them that shows your love and value of them! Priceless!
“I will defend the importance of bedtime stories to my last gasp!”
