    Praise for "The Read-Aloud Handbook" "This book is about more than reading aloud. It's about time that parents, teachers, and children spend together in a loving, sharing way."--"The Washington Post" "As I read this treasure of a book, I became more and more fascinated with its contents...I give it my unqualified recommendation."--"Dear Abby" "Reading aloud is a joyous experience for child and for parent. "The Read-Aloud Handbook" offers useful hints as to why the experience is so mutually rewarding and how to make it work."--Arthur Schlesinger "The Read-Aloud Handbook promises to give parents, teachers, and all others who care about children, reading, and the pursuit of happiness new inspiration."--"The Denver Post" "Fresh, vital, and inspirational...bravo for Trelease! I urge everyone who cares about literacy--and that should include people without children--to read this book."--"Los Angeles"" Herald Examiner"
