Rock Your Read-alouds

The author writes a wonderful story. The illustrator creates incredible images. But what can educators bring to their read-alouds? Do the read-alouds ROCK? The fact is, every read-aloud is a performance. And every aspect of a read-aloud performance informs a child's understanding and appreciation of the story. In this book educators of elementary grades learn dozens of innovative ways to ROCK the read-alouds regardless of experience or performance skills. Educators can apply all the techniques in this book or simply pick a specific performance area to improve upon. Regardless, methods and classroom-tested approaches are provided by some of the best read-aloud performers and storytellers in the business.

"If you are looking for a book that will provide you with all you need to make read aloud the kind of experience that will turn your students on to reading, then Rock Your Read-alouds is the book for you. My wish is that every teacher in the country gets his or her hands on this book. If you don’t do read-alouds, I think this book will convince you to do so; and if you already do read-alouds, this book will help you make it the memorable experience that you want it to be for children and for yourself." - Timothy Rasinski, Ph.D., Kent State University
