The Wild Robot | Peter Brown

This book is amazing! I‘ve spent the past 3 weeks reading this aloud to my 2nd graders and we loved it. It started off slow, but we all became so invested in this robot and her friends and family. Many tears were shed and we can‘t wait to read The Wild Robot Escapes. #readaloud

Tamra It is a favorite here. 💜 2w

#HomeschoolReads Our #November #ReadAloud is Johnny Tremain. My kids are LOVING the insults, so I have to stop them from calling each other a “pig in a louse.“ 😂 #novemberreadaloud #homeschool #homeschoolmamas #sonlight

The rewards of early reading are astonishingly meaningful; toddlers who have lots of stories read to them turn into children who are more likely to enjoy strong relationships, sharper focus, and greater emotional resilience and self mastery. #parenting #readaloud

I‘m sorry I‘ve been MIA this week! It has been nutso around here. But I just wanted to share this adorable moment — Last night, I told the girls I‘d read them a chapter of our current #readaloud while the girls were wrapping presents for Noel‘s birthday today. Coincidentally, last night‘s chapter was entitled “Papa‘s Birthday”, which was just amazingly appropriate! 📚🎉 #raisingreaders

Eggs I adored this book as a kid❣️ 7mo
revenge4porgy One of my favorite series growing up 😎 7mo

These meta photos of @brandybear22 preparing her Litsy posts make me giggle. We‘re enjoying The Iliad and fresh guac for #24in48 😊 #readathon #classics #readaloud

Only a couple of hours today, but for good reason: I spent 4+ hours playing Catan and Bananagrams with friends, then @brandybear22 came over for Chinese food, gift exchange, Doctor Who, and The Iliad. Oh hey, that hour of being read to counts toward #24B42019, too, doesn‘t it? #readathon #readaloud #bookishdatenight

RaimeyGallant Let me check with the judges...it counts! :) 11mo
LauraBeth This sounds like the most perfect day ever! 11mo
julesG Being read to is similar to an audiobook. It counts. 11mo

saresmoore I agree with @LauraBeth —this really sounds like the perfect day! 11mo
kgriffith @RaimeyGallant Woohoo! 🎉 11mo
kgriffith @LauraBeth @saresmoore It really was pretty damned perfect 😊 11mo
kgriffith @julesG I agree, I‘m definitely keeping this in my back pocket for future readathons. @brandybear22, take notice 😉) 11mo
brandybear22 @kgriffith wait... what? Ah, do these read-a-24s happen often? Well yes, similar, but I‘d argue better @julesG. I mean, what with the ability to look over my shoulder and the in-the-moment commentary, surely it‘s all enhancement. 11mo
julesG @brandybear22 Of course it's better than an audiobook. That's why I wrote similar. In my house the rule is also, my kids may craft while I read to them, but, since I am not an audiobook, they cannot play their noisy games while I read aloud. 11mo
kgriffith @brandybear22 They seem to be cropping up all over on Litsy 🤓 Previously I‘ve only actively set aside the two weekends of @DeweysReadathon (April and October), but there‘s also @24in48 (January and July). And yes of course being read to in real time wins over an audiobook, particularly when cuddling is possible 😊 @julesG I think that‘s a perfectly reasonable rule, and I hope you get the occasional lovely crafted gift for your efforts! 11mo
brandybear22 @julesG excellent house rule 11mo
zembla Ooh, which app is this? It looks snazzy 👀 (edited) 11mo
kgriffith @christinamcc Audible tracks your listening for you, do you use their app? If so, when you‘re looking at your library it‘s under “more” and then “me.” 🙂 11mo
zembla @kgriffith Oh neat! I don't use Audible, but that's really cool to know — some of my patrons definitely use it, and now I can share that with them. Thank you! 11mo
kgriffith @christinamcc Absolutely! 11mo
