As a teacher of young students, I will use this book often to help me select appropriate books to read-aloud in my classroom. It would also be a very helpful reference book for new parents as it would help them select good books to read to their children. I'm glad I purchased it!

As a student striving for a Masters in Elementary Education, I found this book to be extremely useful in understanding the importance of reading to children and how reading impacts reading and academic success throughout schooliing. This book is great for parents and teachers alike. Jim Trelease points out important facts to understand behind a child's reading development, and how reading daily impacts learning. It was very easy to read and understand, many examples and stories in order to relate to, and a great resource in finding books that are right for your child or student at any given reading level.

This is a must-read for all parents and parents-to-be. In fact, I think it makes a great baby shower gift. Not only does it have excellent information on why it is important to read to your baby/child, the second half of the book is made up of lists of read-aloud suggestions.

I first checked this book out from the Library. I was so drawn to it that I purchased it. My boys are 8 & 10. I originally just thought it to be a brief description of books to read to the boys at bed time. It was so much more. I have implemented some of the suggestions such as SSR. I had tried this before but after reading the book realized why we failed. ALso love the idea about CC for the TV.

I have purchased and given this book to several of my friends and parents. It shows the value of reading aloud to your child. It also give some suggestions for parents of reluctant listeners. It should be required reading for every parent.

This book truly shows how important it is to read book to children in terms of education. Not just this book encourages parents and educators to read aloud but also it provides very practical mathods along with best practice implemented world wide. As a mom who has been enthusiastic and enjoying reading for my kid, I could get valuable information including recommended book list and also reading methods,..

This book saved us from a lifetime of heartache. I read this book when my boy was very small. I did not know then that he was autistic, learning disabled, and hearing impaired. The school said he would never read. I homeschooled him using the knowledge I took from this book. I taught him to read by reading to him. Today he is in a Master's program for Library Science! Thank you Jim Trelease!

This book is a wonderful resource for parents. Through stories, letters from parents, and up-to-date research, Trelease provides an overview of the benefits of reading to kids and of books. My husband loved the book too. This would be a great gift for new parents as the author recommends reading from birth.

This book, along with a few infant board book favorites, is often my gift for expecting parents. It should be a mandatory read.
