Read my TIPS FOR READING ALOUD to children.
Please share your favorite books to read aloud!


  1. There are so many great ones that I read to my first grade class. My students absolutely love Go Away, Big Green Monster. They read it over and over. It's also appropriate for preschool. As for me, I love all the Frog and Toad books as well as Arnold Lobel's other early chapter books (Owl at Home, Mouse Soup, etc.).

  2. Your tips for reading aloud to children are great. It's hard to choose favorite read alouds. There are so many I love. I'd say my family's favorites from your list are 4, 7, and 9.
    If I had to choose a favorite today, it would be Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?
    Here's a post with a collection of favorite read alouds from a discussion I started.
    I found you on LinkedIn. I'm following you now. You have a great blog.

  3. Great list! I love Llama Llama Red Pajama as a read aloud. It's fun to get into all the llama drama.

  4. Laura - I love that one too. It was hard to pick 10. Every time I read this list, I think of other books I should have added!!!
