What should parents know about read-alouds? 

What must every read-aloud have? 

Should parents memorize a list of strategies, techniques, or questions?

No, no and no.

  1. I think some parents get scared off by too many suggestions – ask questions as you go along, see if kids can find something on the page, or whatever. But your advice is just right – the most important thing about reading to kids is to just do it and to keep it enjoyable.

    • thank you so much, Emma! Believe me–there’s a TON you can do to support reading during read-alouds, but if it’s not fun, you’re done. :)
