Writing as an ordinary mother as well as a bestselling author and internationally respected literacy expert, Fox explores when and where to read aloud and demonstrates with clear, easy-to-follow examples how to read aloud to best effect and how to get the most value and joy out of a read-aloud session. Filled with practical advice, activities, and inspiring true read-aloud miracles, this audiobook is a must for every parent—and for anyone who would like to know more about how children learn to read.

    " Noted children's author Mem Fox brings together personal anecdotes and research to show the importance of reading to children. As a person who grew up in a reading household and raised reader children, it all seems obvious to me, but I have bought a copy for an immigrant friend who has not yet started to read to her two-year-old, believing he is too young and will learn English better from Nickelodean. This is an important book that may not get into the hands of those who need it most. Otherwise, Fox is just preaching to the choir. "

    " More accessible perhaps then The Read Aloud Handbook which I do enjoy. A bit self promoting but I went and checked out some of her kids books and they are cute. Makes many good points about HOW to read aloud so that its more enjoyable. Reading aloud so its enjoyable for all is a skill. And it is so important and this book is a big reminder of how we can do it well. My kids love it when I read aloud to them and I have learned to enjoy it more too and make it more FUN! "

    " Books are everywhere for my children, so I didn't think I needed this book, but I did. I learned a lot about different ways to read, different kinds of reading, and different ways of teaching children to read. Funny and educational, without seeming pretentious. "
