Connecting deeply with our kids can be difficult in our busy, technology-driven lives. Reading aloud offers us a chance to be fully present with our children. It also increases our kids academic success, inspires compassion, and fortifies them with the inner strength they need to face lifes challenges. As Sarah Mackenzie has found with her own six children, reading aloud long after kids are able to read to themselves can deepen relationships in a powerful way.
Founder of the immensely popular Read-Aloud Revival podcast, Sarah knows first-hand how reading can change a childs life. In The Read-Aloud Family, she offers the inspiration and age-appropriate book lists you need to start a read-aloud movement in your own home. From a toddlers wonder to a teenagers resistance, Sarah details practical strategies to make reading aloud a meaningful family ritual. Reading aloud not only has the power to change a familyit has the power to change the world.
Sarah Mackenzie is an author, speaker, and podcast host. She created the Read-Aloud Revival podcast in 2014. That fateful decision resulted in a highly rated show with millions of downloads. Sarah helps families all over the world fall in love with books. She lives in the Northwest with her husband, Andrew. She homeschools their six kids and considers it her high calling to make sure they are well-stocked in the best books she can find.
Poohbee5 Stars Out Of 5The Read-Aloud Family contains wonderful book lists and so much more!March 15, 2018PoohbeeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Sarah Mackenzie shares advice and anecdotes about reading aloud and how life-changing it can be for both our children and ourselves! Why is reading aloud to our children so important? It can help our kids be more successful in school and in life, and it can help us be more present as we spend time with our children. It helps us develop and deepen our relationships with our kids. Books can be an amazing vehicle for shared experiences and a source for wonderful conversations.
I found myself highlighting many passages as I read this book. I love how real, honest, and relatable Sarah is as she provides occasional snapshots of her family life. I love that she tells me not only why I should read aloud often with my kids, but also how I can make the most of our read-aloud time. Sarah gives me the tools I need to take my current read-aloud time with my kids to a deeper level through questioning and discussions, but in a non-threatening and natural way.
Some of my favorite parts of the book are the book lists Sarah provides and the many different ways those book lists are presented. There is an annotated book list of Sarah's 20 favorite books to read aloud for each of 4 different age groups. Then, all of the books Sarah has mentioned can be located by title, by author or illustrator, and by age recommendation. I find it incredibly helpful to have the books indexed in such a variety of ways!
I highly recommend The Read-Aloud Family for anyone who wants to cherish and make the most of the time they have with the children in their lives.
