This video series explains why reading aloud is crucial

At Scholastic, we know from research how important it is to read aloud with your child early and often. Our Scholastic Parents team recently created three videos featuring experts, parents, and kids, to talk about the power of read-alouds, why reading aloud is awesome, and ways parents can be a reading role model for their families.

The Power of Reading Aloud

In this video, we talk with Scholastic Librarian Deimosa Webber-Bey about some of the research behind the importance of reading aloud. We also hear from some kids about why they love read-aloud time!

Kids Share Why Reading Rocks

In this video, we talk with five kids between the ages of 7 and 12 about why they like to read.

Being a Reading Role Model

In this video, Scholastic employees (who are also parents!) share how they model good reading habits for their children.
