A Free ‘Oral Vaccine’ for Literacy


Here is another wonderful post from Jennie!

A Teacher's Reflections

Yes, people would definitely stand in line for days and pay hundreds of dollars.  Yet, it’s all right there, in the words of a book.  Read aloud, go to the library.  Get that free ‘oral vaccine’ for literacy.  Make a difference.

Thank goodness I read his book when my children were young.  Since then, the Read-Aloud Handbook has had seven editions and is a million copy bestseller.  Where does my drive and passion to read aloud come from?  This book!  This is it, the golden key.  While Jim Trelease has facts and research and stories as proof, I have real, hands-on proof — the children I read to.  Oh, what a difference it makes.  I know, first hand.

Read this book.
Read aloud.
Make a difference.
