Read Aloud is a great organization dedicated to promoting caregivers reading to children, especially ages 0-5. Over the last decade, I’ve done each of these things in Read Aloud’s post with my young readers. In fact, just tonight we read a wordless picture book.
And especially when they were much younger, I can’t even tell you how many times I didn’t read all the words. (Mostly to speed up to bedtime. 😆)
There have been times, for a variety of reasons that we haven’t finished our #bedtimeread in one sitting. Most times its a chapter book, but there have also been picture books that have taken more than one night as well (though usually not more than 2).
And yes, especially with those funny books, I have done my own share of exclaiming when we were getting to the climax of a book. The Monster at the End of This Book is a great example of that.
No matter how you do it, I agree with Read Aloud. Just 15 minutes a day is a great way to start #RaisingReaders.
