The Read-Aloud Handbook

If you don't want children to turn into reluctant readers, there is one resource that you must read and keep on hand--The Read-Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelese. This book has to be your first priority. He tells you what to do, when to do it, and how to do it with research data to back up everything he explains. Then he provides a treasure trove of information about what are excellent books to read aloud at what ages. This is an invaluable resource that sells for only $15.

He makes the point that children need to be read to in utero through teen years. Making book reading an integral part of your family's routine is essential for the full development of your children.
