The Read-Aloud Handbook
Do bedtime stories really add up to academic success? In this amazingly thorough book, Trelease discusses the importance of reading aloud to children from birth through high school in both a home and a school setting. Always upbeat, he presents anecdotal and academic evidence to encourage parents and teachers to include reading aloud and silent reading as an important part of every child’s life. Included is a list of suggested reading materials for every age group. There is a reason this book is now in its sixth edition.
