I'm sending home a copy of this set of questions to ask your children while you are reading with them. These questions help you to monitor your child's comprehension and help students learn to defend their ideas and opinions by giving evidence from the text. Good readers talk about the books they are reading and this set of questions is a great starting point.
During a typical 20-30 minute reading session, I would limit the number of questions to between three and five, otherwise the fun begins to evaporate, if you know what I mean.
Here's a printable copy (click here).
