This is a special kind of library. A library of book recommendations that are great read alouds. Some books are childhood favorites, some are teacher’s choices for a classroom, and some are shared family favorites.
There are few moments in a busy day that are more important than sharing a good book. From the busiest parent, to the most frazzled teacher, to the most frustrated child, reading together is something that everyone can enjoy. In a world where children-and their parents- are spending hours a day in front of one type of screen or another, reading aloud remains one of the easiest and purest forms of play. No batteries, no downloads, just your imagination required.
