by the amazing writer, KateMessner. In it, she reminds us of why, no matter how old a child is, reading aloud to him or her is one of the most powerful things you can do.
On my home front, in the interest of not adding one more thing to our already busy school mornings, I recorded the kids reading aloud last night (except for Ellie, because the memory card filled up before it was her turn, so she went this morning before school).
The kids all picked books they love, books they remembered from when they were much younger, the kinds of books they begged to hear over and over and over again. And it was so fun to hear those words come out of their mouths, not mine, and I could almost picture them reading to their own future children.
Okay, without further ado: our read-alouds for World Read Aloud Day!
First, my dad’s annual contribution (with a little help from Max, my parents’ adorable dachsaund). I love my dad!
Here are the kids:
