The 24 open ended question stems are a useful addition to your reading discussions, and can be used in many ways. I use them as a scaffold for my kiddos to encourage meaningful discourse in book talk groups. Cut the cards apart and add to a ring for a valuable resource students can use to generate questions for class discussions. They are useful for mixed-ability groups, small groups, whole group, and one-on-one. I have used these stems for years as a literacy specialist in grades 1-5. I hope they help your children as much as they have helped mine.
