EP 03: The Incredible Benefits of Reading Aloud & Our Favorite Books
Even though I LOVE reading and read voraciously, it didn’t come easy for me when I first started out reading to my toddlers. There is so much science and research to show why reading aloud is so beneficial for our children and probably the one of the best things we can do for them.
We’ll talk about some things I learned from The Read Aloud Family by Sarah McKenzie, and some tips and tricks to help you implement it in your own family, as well as some of our family’s favorite read aloud books!
Links from this episode:
Book Girl by Sarah Clarkson (for you!)
