LAST weekend I held a reading-aloud workshop for volunteers who work with young children, and I thought I would highlight my main points from the session in today's column, as I think these tips are useful for anyone who spends time with children.
First of all, I'm going to take for granted that we all agree that reading aloud is desirable, and want to read aloud to children. The volunteers I met with wanted to know how to choose books for children and also the best way to read the books. Finally, we discussed what we should avoid when reading to kids, and what we should strive to do.
