day 117 - reading aloud
If you're reading this, you probably know that reading books to children is one of my life's passions.
We have been reading to M and G since the day they were born. This is the bookshelf in their room, what you don't see is the basket full of books at the foot of their bed. We love books!
I've had the opportunity to start a new volunteer effort at the public school that M and G attend.
The focus? reading aloud to kindergarten and pre-k students
The purpose? to share a love and passion for reading with students who may not be read to at home
I thought I would list a few of our family's favorite read aloud titles: Goodnight Moon, Runaway Bunny, The Big Red Barn, any fairy tale, Little Black Sambo, The Three Little Pigs, any Curious George, Skippyjohn Jones, Charlotte's Web, The Mouse and the Motorcycle, Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, anything by Eric Carle, How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?, The Little Red Hen, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Pickles to Pittsburgh, The Jesus Storybook Bible, Where the Wild Things Are, Chicken Soup with Rice, Pierre, Alligators All Around, Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, Gus Was a Friendly Ghost, I Can Fly!, Ferdinand, and many, many more
