Reading Aloud to Kids
Next Wednesday is WORLD READ ALOUD DAY.
If you're a teacher or a librarian and haven't scheduled a free Skype reading by one of your favorite authors, next year be sure to check Kate Messner's post about it.
I suspect most of her list has already filled their slots. But if you hurry on up to that link, there could be a few left.
I'm really excited about reading to kids, always one favorite part about being a school librarian. I'm choosing my WRAD selections and thinking hard about what book to pick.
And today I found what could well be my favorite statement about the joy of reading aloud.
I absolutely adore the blogpost from Colby Sharp.
Something that should be framed and hung or at the very least needle-pointed and turned into a pillow:
"The next day we once again met at the carpet for read aloud. Our days can be a little crazy at times, but this is one appointment we never miss."
