5 Criteria for Selecting Read-Aloud Books for Children

I’m over at Year Round Homeschooling today sharing how I pick the books we read aloud to our kids.

5 criteria for selecting read-aloud books for children

 From my post . . .

When I first started teaching my oldest to read, we would bring home dozens of library books. Try as I might, my daughter always found Dora or Scooby-Doo books. So as not to discourage her in her efforts to read, I allowed her to check out these books, but I also picked out my own books– those more in line with what I consider “quality literature.” Since then, my daughter has caught on and discovered for herself the authors and books that appeal to her — that stimulate her mind and feed her imagination.

Come read the rest and share what YOU look for in a good read-aloud book at Year Round Homeschooling!
