I will be sharing quite a bit about reading aloud with my kids and our favorite read alouds. It is a subject near and dear to my heart.
The kids and I began curling up with good books when they were in diapers. And the book adventures have not ended!
Reading aloud is vital to children’s language development and in many other areas as well.
And I am not the only one who thinks so! ( It’s nice when others agree with you, isn’t it?! )
Here are three articles that discuss it further.
Reading a book to a child not only builds literacy, it bonds you together as you share stories and time together.
When attention spans were short, we would pull out a simple picture book and read it before bed.
Then as attention spans grew, chapter books captured our attention & had them begging for “one more chapter!”
Now with my trio all in double digits and able to read themselves, there is a lure that brings us all together at read aloud time.
All it takes is a great book.
Do you read aloud to your children?
