Benefits of Listening to a Book Read Aloud

We’re always so quick to encourage kids to read on their own…in silence…but did you know that there are tons of educational benefits to listening to read aloud books, too? There totally are! When kids hear books being read aloud, they’re making gains in language development, comprehension, fluency, and more!

If you ask me, listing to a book being read aloud even counts as reading a book, especially for the littles. To help keep the kids motivated to read, and to keep track of their reading activities, you should totally grab my free monthly book logs! The set comes with enough pages to keep track of reading progress all year long!
