Summer book study: The read aloud handbook by Jim Trelease

Our summer book study, hosted by Pre-K Pages, will soon be up and running and I hope you will join us for this very exciting book. This year, my fellow bloggers and I will be walking through  ” The Read-Aloud Handbook: Seventh Edition” by Jim Trelease…

Read Aloud Handbook Book Study

I don’t know if you have ever had the opportunity to read one of Jim Trelease’ previous versions of the Read Aloud Handbook but I have and inside the pages are wonderful insights on the value of reading aloud, how best to read aloud, and what books are considered to be the best read aloud books today…

    Hi Deborah .. I’m excited to read this book! I was wondering (since you have read a previous version), if you recommend I buy the hardcopy or, if you think a Nook version will work? I LOVE my Nook, and was considering that option for this book – but if it’s filled with colorful pictures – then the hardcopy is probably best. But if it’s really mainly text-based, I’ll get the Nook version.

    What would you suggest? Thanks!!! 🙂

      I think the Nook version will do! The past has been more text than visuals.

    I love that book! I refer to it regularly. Unfortunately we will be limited on wifi for the summer, so I’ll have to catch up on your book study later on. I’ve bookmarked it so I don’t forget!

    I have a previous version on my shelf that I have never ended up reading. Perhaps I will try to read my older version along with you all. 😉

    I just received my book and am looking forward to the study! I love the Treasury of Read-Alouds in the back, not just for my PreK class but also for my 7 year old, book-loving daughter! Thank u so much Deborah!
