For the adults, the retreat from reader to listener is often rapid during the years from ages 5-7. It is easy to forget that children love to be read to when they are older. With more difficult material, the same learning process applies. My daughter, for example, delighted in having an English teacher in 7th grade who read to the class every day.
Even if you do decide to read to one another, what do you read? It is hard to take on 150 page youth books.
Into this perceptual and content gap comes the very helpful You Read to Me & I'll Read to You. Having helped raise four children and being quite interested in reading to them . . . as well as being someone who often reviews children's books, I was humbled to realize that the very fine stories in this volume were mostly new to me. I wish this book had been published about 25 years ago so I could have read all of these stories with my children.
Most of the stories are at a third grade reading level, so the reading to one another will make a lot of progress over time. Some of the material would be appealing to kindergartners, but the vocabulary for most of the stories would be past many first graders. My suggestion is that you read all of the stories, and think about which ones will be right for the child you will be listening to and reading to.Read more ›
This collection contains many wonderful stories, and my kids do enjoy it, we had already ready half of these books; I didn't need a compilation like this, I feel like I was duped into thinking this was a compilation of "take turn reading practice" books by Amazon.
The title is misleading, as it really is just short stories and novels in a large format book, there isn't really a take turns reading aspect to it at all.
So, for future buyers, it may not be what you are looking for.
