There’s nothing like snuggling up together to enjoy a good book. The trouble is that sometimes it’s hard to choose a good book to snuggle up with!
My go-to source for selecting new family read-alouds is Jim Trelease’s The Read Aloud Handbook. This book is chock full of reading suggestions for all ages and interests. We’ve discovered many gems within its pages, some of which we’ve read multiple times.
Books to be shared out loud need to have a certain literary value to be enjoyable. Sure, you can read The Diary of a Wimpy Kid out loud. But, it’s much more fun to read We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen or The Trumpet of the Swan by E.B.White or the Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary.
Pick up a copy of this book and you’re sure to find many, many hours of family reading pleasure ahead of you.
