For many families, Advent is full of traditions and memory-making opportunities; some of my favorite Christmas times involve reading aloud as a family. Reading aloud allows us to build family culture, to get to know the same characters, and to develop “inside jokes” and literary references that draw us together. Reading aloud is also just plain fun! This year’s Everyday Educator Advent series introduces listeners to some new friends from all across the country; listen this week as the Knotts from Connecticut share what they love to read together, and why reading as a family is so powerful. Your family may find a new read aloud to share tonight!
