The Read-Aloud Handbook: Sixth Edition (Read-Aloud Handbook) by Jim Trelease
The Read-Aloud Handbook: Sixth Edition (Read-Aloud Handbook)

Abigail Kurfman, February 19, 2012

Jim Trelease's book is in its sixth edition for a reason: it is a veritable treasure trove of information on the important subject of reading aloud and many closely related topics.

Whether you are a parent, a teacher, a librarian, an administrator, a school board member, a grandparent, or a...(the list could go on and on), this useful book will help you think about instilling love for books and literacy in each child.

It contains:
*A list of tried-and-true read-aloud books

*Concrete tips on how to read aloud

*Concrete ideas about how to enhance interest in books & reading

*Research to support his statements (and historical facts to entertain

*Inspiring stories of actual lives changed by reading aloud & other ideas in the book

...and so much more!

It's not a perfect book, but it has both heart and substance and I am thankful I read it - excited to share the stories and research with others in my community, and eager to stretch my own read-aloud muscles!

I read a borrowed copy, but I just bought one of my own from Powells so I can annotate all my favorite parts and the things I want to come back to (not to mention pass around this fabulous and useful book)!
