    Great tips. I take my daughter to the library once a week for story time. She loves it and it’s great for me too.

    There are so many great tips here! Plus you mentioned so many of my favorite books. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is another of my favorites to read aloud!

    Love this. I read to my daughter every day but feel like I rush through the book and that she needs me to talk about everything. You’re right silence is good to try since they are absorbing it all anyway! Thanks for the tips.

    This is a wonderful post. We’ve always enjoyed reading aloud in our home. Believe it or not, we still read aloud with our adult children. 🙂

      I love it! My parents still send books every opportunity they get! Every time we get together, my mom or dad will inevitably bring out a book as well. Habits are addicting right.. Thank you for commenting!

    Just think of all the training it takes to record audio books- it’s like practice

      I used to record audiobooks for my students because they were ELLs and needed the auditory as well as the visual book in their reading group, and I think my cartoon voices are SERIOUSLY better thanks to doing this. I even have parents come and volunteer to record books to subliminally give them extra practice for home. Sneaky huh?:) Thanks for your comment!! Happy reading!
