Reading comprehension skills are best handled with oral questions to ensure comprehension at early levels. Until a child is reading about 100 words a minute, his comprehension is usually not very good, so do not be overly concerned if a younger child is concentrating on decoding and not doing very well on comprehension.
If you choose not to use a complete reading program (with readers and workbooks), but use either real books or readers without companion workbooks, you might wish to supplement reading with comprehension activities by using one or more of the following books.
