    I have three loves: reading to myself, reading aloud to my children, and lists of things. Reading a book about reading aloud, which itself contained a list of further books to read, should have been up my alley. Spoiler! The Read-Aloud Handbook sure wasn't.

    Trelease starts with inspirational dubious correlation!=causation studies, anecdotes, and not very much in terms of useful advice for parents and teachers with reasonably normal instincts. I confess I started to skip swaths of the material. Finally, it was time to settle in with his list of recommended books, each of which comes with a nice blurb and many of which say "if you like this, you might like..."

    It's not bad, as lists go, but it suffers from severe recency bias. About 90% first published between 1964 through 1980 (my edition was published 1982). As one can tell from my "read/to-read" lists here, I tend to cut a wider swath, therefore am suspicious of the recommendations of someone so glued to his own time.

    I did hope that his list would jog some memories -- I'm old enough that most of these would've still been on the bookshelves when I was growing up, but the books he lists which I remembered are ones I remembered, the ones I didn't, I don't. No sudden "oh, that must have been the title!" epiphanies.

    Maybe later editions of this book are improved (I'm reading the first ed, and the Handbook is up to seventh), but I'm not placing much stock in Trelease as a useful recommender.

    A MUST for all parents of young children. The book consists of two major sections: The first half of the book stresses the importance of reading aloud (even after your children have learned to read on their own). It sites study after study of how reading aloud strongly influences almost every aspect of the child's academic life: vocab, grammar, awareness, IQ, etc. Never too young to start reading and certainly never too old to enjoy a good story together. Even simple baby books use words outside the standard lexicon. Exposure gives children a huge advantage over those less fortunate.

    The second half of the book lists a treasury of fantastic read-alouds. Starting with picture books, moving to short and long novels. Also lists poetry and fables. The best part of the treasury is the reading comprehension age level suggestions. A reminder that kids can thrive listening to books well beyond their reading level.

    This book was updated in 2006. It lists current books (Harry Potter), oldies but goodies (Mike Mulligan), and little known treasures.
