Reading aloud

One of the activities  that I have loved most about parenting is reading aloud.  Okay, so occasionally I read aloud before I had my daughter, but having a kid gives you license, almost requires you to read aloud and often.

My daughter is now 10 and it’s harder to find the time but I encourage myself and you to keep doing it. It is a ritual of family life that shouldn’t don’t end.

A great resource for tips on how to improve your reading aloud experience can be found in Jim Trelease’s book The Reading-Aloud Handbook or by visiting his web site.  I’m linking here to his free parent brochures:

Please let me know about your experiences with reading aloud.
