Reading aloud helps children gain the knowledge and skills neccessary for learning how to read. We know this not just from research but also from paying attention to the profound impact reading aloud can have on children’s language development, including vocabulary, spelling and grammar; their imaginations and views of world; and their capacity for problem-solving.
We operate with the core belief that children do not need to “get ready” to be readers and writers; instead, we believe they already are readers and writers—albeit on their own terms—as they live and learn inside literate communities (Glover & Ray, 2008). In challenging widely held beliefs about “readiness” we wish to capitalize on what children do know rather than focus on what they don’t know.
