9780140467277: The Read-Aloud Handbook (Penguin handbooks)

This extensively revised and updated edition describes why parents and teachers should read to children; how to begin reading aloud and which books to choose; how to create an atmosphere in the home and classroom that welcomes readers; and how to compete with the influences of television, computers, and video games. Also features an updated treasury featuring more than 1,200 new and classic children's titles, from picture books to novels, that are perfect for reading aloud.

From Library Journal:

Revising his 1985 edition, Trelease preaches the reading gospel with undiminished fervor. Updated evidence from scholarly and journalistic sources (50 percent post-1985) bolsters his case for reading aloud from infancy through adolescence. Trelease addresses parents, but directs considerable homiletic energy toward librarians, pediatricians, clergy, and above all, schools: a new chapter cites individual, state, and district "success stories." There is a new list of "predictable" (i.e., cumulative or repetitive) books, and over 70 synopses are of books published 1985-89. Most choices are excellent. Wider in scope than parent guides like Eden R. Lipson's Parent's Guide to the Best Books for Children ( Times Bks., 1988), Michele Landsberg's Reading for the Love of It (LJ 11/15/87), or Betsy Hearne's Choosing Books for Children (LJ 5/1/81), Trelease's book covers a broader age range and is easier to use than Masha Rudman and Anna M. Pierce's For Love of Reading (Consumer Reports Bks., 1988). His enthusiasm is infectious, and his "related readings" suggestions are invaluable (and unique).
