Reading Level: For Parents & Teachers
"I am devoted follower of the Read-Aloud Handbook, and I thought for sure Jim Trelease was officially retired, so imagine my delight when this seventh edition appeared on Amazon! To make things even better, there is tremendous amount of new material in this edition. I have read the sixth edition front to back multiple times (I even did a blog series reviewing it chapter by chapter), and I have a copy of the first edition that I found at the used bookstore, but now I think I might have to invest in copies of editions 2, 3, 4 and 5 as well! Trelease really does replace at least 40 percent of the content and significantly revise the book list. This is definitely worth ordering if you already have a previous edition."
"Who Should Read This Book?
If you're a teacher or a parent you might be thinking "I read to my kids every single day, I don't need to read this book." And you would be dead wrong. There is so much more to Jim's message than just "read to your kids" - it only scratches the surface of this book. The author explores every single aspect of reading aloud thoroughly- and in my opinion with just the right amount of research balanced with personal stories, making it a relaxing and enjoyable read. If it was up to me this book would be required reading for every single administrator, politician, school board member, teacher, and parent."
