Learning to read can be hard. And when our kids are still learning to read fluently and well, helping them fall in love with books can feel impossible. But it doesn't have to be that way. In today's episode, I'm going to show you how to help your kids fall in love with stories, and tell you why it will help them more to keep reading aloud than to cram in another long phonics lesson. IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL HEAR: a reminder that learning to read is a little like climbing a mountain! ⛰️the key to getting our kids reading (hint: it's NOT endless phonics practice)how to become a book match-maker for your child I also answer two questions about transitioning from audio books to independent reading and the advantages and disadvantages to reading versus watching Shakespeare.

The reading skill will come with time."Sarah Mackenzie LINKS FROM THIS EPISODE: The Great Homeschool ConventionsPam Barnhill - Your Morning BasketColleen Kessler - Raising Lifelong LearnersRAR #171: How to Introduce Your Kids to ShakespeareAll About ReadingLogic of EnglishRAR #105: Favorite Early Reader Books (for kids who are learning to read)Get RAR emailsSeries to Hook Your Developing Reader (Book List)Laura Martin episode about 'finding the right jelly bean' BOOKS FOR DEVELOPING READERS: (All links are Amazon affiliate links.)
