If a child gets through elementary school having learned just one thing, to love to read, I believe that that education has been a success.
And one of the best ways, perhaps the best way, to help a child learn to love to read, is to read to them.
But reading aloud does so much more than teach love of reading, as shown by the comments posted here.
Did your teacher read aloud to you?
Are you a teacher who reads aloud to your students?
Tell your stories here. Post them in the comment section.
Every story is a thank you to those who read aloud.
And every story is an inspiration and motivation to those who should be reading aloud.
Please add your name and your occupation to your story.
And spread the word.
