Reading Aloud to Children brochure

11th May 2001 at 01:00
The Reading Aloud to Children brochure explores the rationale of making stories and poems come alive through a living voice: getting children immersed in texts and extending the range and power of narrative. It goes on to offer well-researched advice on the choice of books and how and when to make reading effective. Using examples ranging from Quentin Blake picture books o Seamus Heaney's retelling of Beowulf, it provides a helpful mix of information and inspiration.
