Read-Aloud Book Ideas

read-aloud book ideasJacqueline Fisher lists books and audio books kids love to listen to before bed time.
She says, “Listening to a book helps kids to develop better concentration and listening skills, engages their imagination, increases their vocabulary and enhances their desire to be a reader as they grow.

In addition to parent/child read-aloud time, families can also include online read-alouds and audio books as part of their child’s literacy activities. These online books can really help to increase the time your kids spend reading and being read to — use them in the car when your running errands or in the evening while while you’re preparing dinner.”

Teachers recommend reading to children for 15-30 minutes a night! The benefits are amazing! Check out this blog for ideas on specific books to read.
