The Riches of Reading Aloud


Reading to your children ~ one of life's greatest gifts.

Just starting out? 
A few of my faves:

Young or old, entire families benefit 
from reading aloud: 

Bonding
Empathy
Compassion
Courage
Language
Literacy
Vocabulary

Another current fave:



Our current family read:


Looking for more inspiration? Check out my 
from the library.

Another book benefit: 
Classic literature never goes out of style. Children won't know if a book

If you haven't read it, it is new to them ~ and you. 
Try doing that with 70's flower jackets and the 80's MC Hammer pants. 

    Me. Weren't the 1970's awesome?                                         You had an MC doll, right?


There is a beautiful, extravagant world waiting for you at the library.

Have a great weekend.
