A family read aloud is an amazing experience to give your family. Reading together is a simple way to create a meaningful connection with your children. We focus largely on reading to our youngest kids but kids of all ages (yes, up to the teen years) enjoy when a parent will read aloud to them. Our list is curated to include classic and high-quality literature for all ages. Including the enjoyment of the adult reader!
And, since families are composed of all ages, our groupings are very loose and flexible. A book that is in the suggested list for ‘Younger Children’ will also be enjoyed by older children. Don’t be surprised if your tween is perfectly happy listening to something a much younger sibling is enjoying!
Not every book will “click” with every family. That is okay. Do not be afraid to put it down and find something else that is more engaging. Sometimes it is just the age or stage and it will be a better option later. Sometimes, it is just the book and it is okay not to finish. You want read aloud time to be something that your family will cherish forever so make it as enjoyable for everyone as possible!
