“All children have the right to read and write, and to change the world with their words and stories.”- Mission Statement of Litworld, organizers of World Read-Aloud Day
Every day is a good day to read aloud, and tomorrow on March 6, 2013, we all have an excuse to engage in a community reading experience. When children are young we read to them frequently out of necessity, but as they get older we read to them less and miss the wonderful way in which stories and ideas are shared when we read together.
We’re also excited about our science book read-alouds at the first ever Tumblehome Learning Science Book Fair & Book Talks on Monday, April 15th (Patriots Day) from 11:00am-3:00pm as a free event of the 2013 Cambridge Science Festival. Until then, here are some great book suggestions for science readers:
Preschool and Elementary
Ocean Sunlight by Penny Chisholm and Molly Bang
The Invisible ABCs: Exploring the World of Microbes by Rodney P. Anderson
Late Elementary and Middle School
A Cool Drink of Water by Barbara Kerley
