Celebrating Read Across America + World Read Aloud Day!



I LOVE reading out loud! There are so many ways to be involved in the story! Voices, gestures, inflection, silly faces! Let go of any inhibition and have fun! Your kids will thank you and want to do it even more.  For this Read Across America/WRAD, here are some of my all-time favorites. 
1.  Little Pea: Amy Krous Rosenthal; ill.-Jen Corace
2.  Big Words for Little People: Jamie Lee Curtis; ill.-Laura Cornell
3.  A Bad Case of the Stripes: David Shannon
4.  Falling For Rapunzel: Leah Wilcox; ill.-Lydia Monks
