Reading Aloud

Research and practice show that one simple activity, reading aloud, is the best way to prepare children for learning to read and to keep them reading as they learn and grow.  Reading aloud helps your children develop the language skills that they will use in school and throughout their lives.  Reading aloud also creates a special time for you to bond with your children.

WHY READ ALOUD? 

Because reading aloud:

  • Is great fun, and it benefits your children's growth as readers and learners.
  • Nurtures your children's love of both the written and spoken word.
  • Gives you a chance to rediscover favorite stories and find new ones.
  • Helps your children develop important language skills that will help them learn to read on their own.
