The Read-Aloud Handbook

Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Of all the parenting books in the library I'd argue that The Read-Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelease is really the only parenting book you need. In fact I've written about it before. My copy was gifted to me at my baby shower and I've referenced it numerous times in the last couple years. A combination of research, personal anecdotes, and read-aloud suggestions (yes, actual book lists) make this book both informative and practical for any adult that reads to children.

If you don't have time to read the book in its entirety, follow along with #littlelitbookseries today on Instagram for key highlights and salient quotes.

"Reading is like riding a bicycle, driving a car, or sewing: In order to get better at it you must do it. And the more you read, the better you get at it. The past thirty years of reading research confirms this simple formula, regardless of gender, race, nationality, or socioeconomic background. Students who read the most also read the best, achieve the most, and stay in school the longest.”
