Reading aloud: Wonderful example for children

Responding to my post about early reading influences in my Children’s Literature class, a classmate raises the point that my husband and me reading aloud together can set a wonderful example for “whatever little ears are around.”

My classmate is right and from time to time we’ve encountered children for whom reading was drudgery — whether because of a print disability or for some other reason. I always hoped, when these children saw my husband and me reading together, they would be exposed to the possibility that reading could be enjoyable.
