Product Description

Bestselling author and literacy expert Mem Fox reveals the incredible emotional and intellectual impact reading aloud to children has on their ability to learn to read.

All parents want and expect their children to learn to read, but few realize they can get their kids on the road to reading long before they start school simply by reading aloud to them every day. With passion and humor, acclaimed author and internationally respected literacy expert Mem Fox tells readers how she herself became aware of the astonishing effects that reading aloud and bonding through books have on very young children.

She speaks of when, where, and why to read aloud and demonstrates how to read aloud to best effect and how to get the most out of a read-aloud session. She walks readers through the three secrets of reading which together make reading possible. She gives guidance on defining, choosing, and finding good books and closes with tips on dealing effectively with the challenges that sometimes arise when children are learning to read.

Filled with practical advice, activities, and inspiring true read-aloud miracles, this book is a must for every parent-and for anyone interested in how children learn to read.

Author Bio

Mem Fox was born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1946. She grew up on a mission in Zimbabwe, went to drama school in London for three years in the mid-sixties, and returned to Australia in 1970, where she continued her studies and then taught drama and literacy for twenty-eight years. In 1996, she took early retirement from her position as Associate Professor of Literacy Studies at Flinders University in order to write and consult full time. She has been a literacy consultant in Australia, the United States, Taiwan, Guam, Singapore, South Africa, Uganda, and Tanzania and is well known as the writer of several nonfiction books for adults and many best-selling picture books for children, including Time for Bed and Possum Magic. She and her family live in Adelaide, South Australia.

Editorial Reviews

“Fox writes with a light touch, going straight to the heart of preschool concerns with affection and wit.”
—The New York Times Book Review


"In a marvelous example of audio’s power to improve lives, a children’s book author uses her sparkling vocal personality to promote reading aloud to children. "The fire of literacy," she says, "is created by the emotional sparks between a child, a book, and the person reading." The sound of her commitment to this notion and the skillful way she makes her case are only the beginning. Through her appealing vocal skills and the specific techniques she teaches, she persuades listeners that reading aloud to children is not only crucial for the child’s appreciation of language but also immensely satisfying for anyone caring for young children. In this isolating age of electronic addictions, reading aloud is a magical way to imprint in our children the need for connections with real people."
