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)!

Every parent and teacher (Pre-K through high school level) should be required to read this book. The research and real life experiences it presents are eye opening and heart warming. Reading aloud to a child benefits the child's ability to learn and helps develop a love of reading all the while a wonderful bond between the reader and the child is created and nurtured. Note to everyone: read aloud to children no matter what their age!!!

I love this book! As a teacher, I see how reading aloud with kids really helps them develop as readers. Their fluency, comprehension and love of reading increases with every book I read to them. We develop as a community of readers and sharing book experiences helps us grow as a family.

I recommend this book to parents and I also give it as a baby shower gift. I know it's not a traditional gift, but it's one that can really grow with the child.
