Readin Aloud to Your Child: Part II (Don'ts)

Yesterday, I gave you ten examples of what a parent or teacher should do when reading aloud to children. Today, I will give examples of what not to do according to The Read-Aloud Handbook, by J. Trealease.

1. Don't read aloud too fast.

2. Don't read aloud books children can read independently. Instead talk about the book.

3. Don't read aloud books or stories you don't enjoy. You child will know.

4. Don't read aloud books or stories that exceed the child's emotional development.

5. Don't continue reading a book you don't like or the child doesn't like. Admit it, and choose another.

6. Don't impose your interpretation and preferences on your child.

7. Don't confuse quantity with quality.

8. Don't use reading aloud as a reward or punishment. Make it a tradition or habit.
