True confession time here... I have not read this book yet, first time I have heard of it. But I am happy to see there is verification for one of my strong beliefs, reading aloud is wonderful.
I love reading to children. Before I even had children of my own I loved reading to children. My home is filled with lots of children's books and I am so glad to have them. Visiting children love to look at the titles and pick one for reading. And I am happy to read aloud at the slightest indication it would be appreciated. I enjoy dramatizing and acting out, changing voices, etc. even though I am not that great at it. Children are such great audiences. The sillier I am the more they love it.
Dr. Seuss is one of our favorites, of course. We have all of his books, even his adult ones. Check those out if you are surprised, but he has books with cartoons, Lady Godiva, etc. You can find a Dr. Seuss book for almost any age. Another favorite is Bill Peet. He has such appropriate and still entertaining messages in his books.
Anyone want to share some of their favorite read aloud books?
