    Why Read Aloud?

    "Reading is the ultimate weapon, destroying ignorance, poverty, and despair before they can destroy us. A nation that doesn't read much doesn't know much. And a nation that doesn't know much is more likely to make poor choices in the home, the marketplace, the jury box, and the voting booth. And those decisions ultimately affect an entire nation---the literate and the illiterate." Jim Trelease

    What began as a modest, self-publishing adventure for a writer in the late 1970's has become a "classic" resource for both parents and teachers. In his best seller, "The Read Aloud Handbook," Jim Trelease answers the age old question: "Why Read Aloud?"

    Trelease's handbook is comprised of ten chapters which guide you through the why and how of reading aloud: Why Read Aloud? When to Begin (and End) Read-Aloud; The Stages of Read-Aloud; The Do's and Don'ts of Read-Aloud; Sustained Silent Reading: Reading Aloud's Natural Partner; The Print Climate in the Home; School, and Library; Digital Learning: Good News and Bad; Television and Audio: Hurting or Helping Literacy? Dad---What's the Score? A Hyper Kid's Road to Reading. The handbook also includes a "Treasury of Read-Alouds" a beginner's reference to selecting books. The chapters within this section are comprised of: How to Use the Treasury; Wordless Books; Predictable Books; Reference Books; Picture Books; Short Novels; Full-Length Novels; Poetry; Anthologies; Fairy and Folk Tales. Notes, Bibliography, Subject Index for the Text and Author-Illustrator Index for the Treasury complete the handbook.

    "The Read Aloud Handbook" is an excellent non-sectarian resource for "the support of reading aloud and other practices that nurture lifetime readers."
