Hey! Listen to This: Stories to Read Aloud Reviews
I loved this book! I found this gem in the social sciences section at the library and I'll be checking it out again.This book included great biographical information about the authors and had chapters from their books so you could read a taste. Many included enough information about what was happening in the story beforehand that you could read them as stand alones and not feel cheated. Some complete stories were also included. I have a copy of Mr. Trelease's other book about read aloud stories and have enjoyed it as well.
Hey! Listen to This: Stories to Read Aloud by Jim Trelease (Penguin Books 1992) (808.8) is an anthology of read-aloud tales from "some of the best children's books ever written." They're all here: Homer Price, Ramona the Pest, Aesop; this book is full of good stuff. It is filled with close to 400 pages of stories for those who love to read and those who love to be read to. My rating: 7/10, finished 10/10/13.
If you don't happen to have a copy of Cricket's Choice c. 1974 on your shelves, not to worry -- you can still find Gianni Rodari's hilarious Little Green Riding Hood in Trelease's anthology of all time hits.We finished off our "Color-rific" story time with this story, using a very simple paper-bag puppet with changeable hoods, because today's craft was to make their own Any-Color-Riding-Hood paper sack puppet to take home.
I LOVE this book. I read it aloud to Wren and Spence and still occasionally pick it up to read one of the stories. Our favorite was The Pudding Like a Night on the Sea from The Stories Julian Tells by Ann Cameron. When Spence was one and Wren was five, they would both laugh out loud at this story. :-)
This is a great book for all parents - a wonderful collection of short stories, folk tales and book excerpts to read aloud to your kids. I like the background it gives on the authors. Who knew that Beverly Clearly (one of my childhood favorite authors) struggled with reading at first?
Some great stuff in here for ideas for read alouds -- something that is very big around here. Also some good ideas for books on CD, our next most favorite thing. I might be a bit biased; Jim Trelease had me reading to my kids when then were in vitro. Yea, yea.. I'm a total nut, what can I say?
The information about the authors was interesting and there were good suggestions about further reading.
Lots of great stories in here, got a fair number of books that I want to read now. Highly recommended.
Great book recommendations.
Small samples of read aloud books as well as some very interesting facts about the authors...some biographical, how they came about writing the story, drawing the illustrations etc.
