RAR #00: Welcome to the Read-Aloud Revival

Read-Aloud Revival ®

When I ask experienced homeschool parents what they wish they had done more often or focused more on, they never–not ever–say anything academic.

Nope. Reminiscing homeschool parents tell me something else entirely. And do you know what they say? Relationships. They always, always talk about something related to the relationships nurtured during their homeschooling years.

Relationships & Reading Aloud

In fact, their favorite memories very often revolve around the memories they made and the books they shared.

Reading aloud is not only the best tool for helping our kids academically succeed across the curriculum, it also helps them:

  • Grow in empathy and compassion
  • Bear witness to people overcoming obstacles, facing struggles, and pressing onward
  • Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes
  • Connect ideas and think more clearly about the world around them and their role in it
