This week my posts will be short & sweet. Each day I'm going to share the title of one of my favorite non-fiction books.
Here's today's book:
The Read-Aloud Handbook, by Jim Trelease
I first read this book in college, as required reading for one of my courses. (I was an elementary ed major.)
It had a big impact on me and helped shape my perspective on sharing books with my children.
I can't begin to tell you how much I've enjoyed reading aloud with my kids. I cannot WAIT to experience some of the same titles again with Manzo when he gets to the right age.
On a related note, some of my fondest childhood memories are times when my mom and dad read good books to me & my siblings. I'm so thankful for all those many hours of sharing good books. Such a gift! Reminds me of this poem.
