Librarian’s Talk Children’s Books: Favorite Read Alouds

This week in Librarian's Talk Children's Books, we wanted to talk about those books we love to read aloud to children. Read-aloud is a great activity to do with your child that greatly benefits your child’s literary learning experience. Reading a book out loud can help build and support children’s listening and speaking abilities. It's also a great way to help build your child’s vocabulary and a great way to create conversations to increase your child’s knowledge. Doing storytimes on a regular basis helps give children’s librarians a chance to try different picture books and see children’s response and interaction to each picture book title. Here are some of our recommendations of good books to read out loud to your child. This week’s guests are Ashlee Green, Children’s Programming Librarian stationed at Fig Garden Library, and Yvette Herrera a librarian from Madera County Library system.
