- If your eyes were closed, could you tell who was talking just by their voice?
Give it a try!
The video below features different Disney movie characters. As you listen, try to guess who is talking!
(You do not need to watch the whole video unless you want to, but listen to at least a few different characters.)
- Wasn't that fun?
- Why was it important to this lesson?

- How many Disney character voices were you able to guess?
In this lesson, you will learn about characters. You will think about the point of view they use. You will also practice reading their words aloud in fun voices!
This is important because it will help you to understand the characters and the type of people they are better.
First, watch this video to review what characters are.
Every character has a point of view.
Watch this next video to find out!
Point of view is who is telling a story and also what the characters think about something.
You may have heard of first-person point of view and third-person point of view.
To find out, watch another video.
Characters can have different points of view. They share their points of view through dialogue.
Watch one last video!
Just like we all have different voices in real life, characters in books have different voices from each other too.
You should hear these voices in your head when you are reading to yourself.
When you are reading aloud, you should do a different voice for each character. That helps keep track of the characters and know who is talking.
Here are some steps.
- Think about which characters are in that part of the story.
- Think about which characters are TALKING in that part of the story.
- Use a voice that would match the character who is speaking.
