Bestselling author and literacy expert Mem Fox reveals the incredible emotional and intellectual impact reading aloud to children has on their ability to learn to read.
All parents want and expect their children to learn to read, but few realize they can get their kids on the road to reading long before they start school simply by reading aloud to them every day. With passion and humor, acclaimed author and internationally respected literacy expert Mem Fox tells readers how she herself became aware of the astonishing effects that reading aloud and bonding through books have on very young children.
She speaks of when, where, and why to read aloud and demonstrates how to read aloud to best effect and how to get the most out of a read-aloud session. She walks readers through the three secrets of reading which together make reading possible. She gives guidance on defining, choosing, and finding good books and closes with tips on dealing effectively with the challenges that sometimes arise when children are learning to read.
Filled with practical advice, activities, and inspiring true read-aloud miracles, this book is a must for every parent-and for anyone interested in how children learn to read.

I've always loved reading and want to pass that love on to my own children. I picked this book up not knowing anything about it or the author (turns out I already had one of her books - Wilfrid Gordon Mcdonald Partridge).
I'm extremely excited after reading the book. I've always read aloud but with the tips from Mem, story time is so much more fun. It's not just the benefits of reading that my children will take away because each reading has become a bonding experience thats priceless.
