Well, that is how I want you to feel at the “There’s a Lap for That Read Aloud Library.” Right at home, with a book and a child on your lap. This is a special kind of library. A library of books that are great read alouds. Some books are childhood favorites, some are teacher’s choices for a classroom, and some are shared family favorites.

There are few moments in a busy day that are more important than sharing a good book. From the busiest parent, to the most frazzled teacher, to the most frustrated child, reading together is something that everyone can enjoy. In a world where children-and their parents- are spending hours a day in front of one type of screen or another, reading aloud remains one of the easiest and purest forms of play. No batteries, no downloads, just your imagination required.

Who can nominate a book? Parents, teachers, librarians, children, editors, writers and illustrators.  Do you have a favorite read aloud? If you have read the book, or the book has been read to you, nominate a book.

So, join me and…

Turn it off. Turn a Page. Share a Book.
