A little variety in the story reading ritual may keep you from going stale. Here are a few suggestions:

Change the scene: At bedtime, set up the sheet like a tent and read a story in bed under the sheet by the glow of a flashlight.

Include sound effects and voices: Add you own noises and sound effects to stories (if a door opens make it creak). Change your voice and read each part in the character’s voice.

Assign parts: Give your child something to say when their character speaks.
