Reading Aloud: Open a World of Possibilities

Reading aloud is the heart of an education. How and what we read aloud to children and teens increases language development, generates knowledge, offers the joy of reading and opens a world of possibilities. Giorgis is the co-author of the most recent edition of "Jim Trelease's Read-Aloud Handbook."
