Jan 11, Adrienne rated it liked it. I have really mixed feelings about this book. I would buy this book for that alone and I give 5 stars to that part, which is significant because it comprises over half of the book. Plus, the overall thrust of the book read out loud to your kids is something I am passionate about. The rest of the book Some of the information is really inspiring rread some of it just fell flat for me. For one thing, the writing and reasonin I have really mixed feelings trelesse this book.

For one thing, the writing and reasoning are lacking. The conclusions Trelease draws from the research he is citing are often a pretty big stretch. For example, “In the nearly ten years since the arrival of the [Harry: Well, what other random social statistics changed during those same ten years?


I’m certain there were negative changes. Are those tied to Harry Potter mania? But Raed is totally implying that the reading obsession that treleade kids during their Harry Potter years is linked to a drop in teen pregnancies?

That needs a VERY significant amount of research to draw any kind of usable correlation. And that is typical of a lot of his correlational claims throughout the mim. I did like the emphasis on reading to children even as they get older and are able to read to themselves. Trelease’s information in that section is very interesting and that’s a practice that probably doesn’t really occur to many of us.

Aug 15, Jennifer rated it did not like it. I had written a scathing review and gave this book one star then my computer did something weird and the review was lost. A friend questioned the one star so I thought I would rewrite the review. Maybe I am a bit judgmental of books on parenting, I always think “Why is there a book on this?? Why isn’t common sense enough? We have to obsessively study the topic too?


I was raised by two hyper-intelligent people who were the most hands off parents you could meet, they were voracious readers and as a direct result I am a voracious reader.

My mom was a tremendous cook, and as a direct result I love to cook. My Dad was tall, well you see the pattern?? I don’t need to spend what little free time I have in life studying the topic. I think we are all losing our minds and making raising kids way harder than it needs to be.

Give them love, food, shelter then get the heck out of their way–they will be who they are going to be in spite of you.

Thats my two cents for the day!

Mar 06, Sarah rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is a great reference when you want to know what would be a good book to read aloud to your children. The premise is that children can understand text that is too hard for them to read.

When we read aloud to our children things that are exciting to them, they develop a love of books. Then, because they know and love books, they will do the work to learn how to read fluently.
