5 Books to Celebrate World Read Aloud Day

My dear friend, Lisa, who also happens to be one of my fellow co-founders of Latinas for Latino Literature, brought it to my attention that today is World Read Aloud Day.

Doesn't that just sound like the most fun day so far this year?

I have written numerous articles on the importance of parents reading to their children and even on the benefits of audiobooks. So I'm not going to go there with this post. Instead, I'm going to share my top five Latino children's literature read-alouds. I hope that you will share yours, too, by leaving a comment.

But before you do, grab your nene and your favorite book and snuggle up on the couch for at least 20 minutes of reading-aloud goodness! Don't forget - you can read-aloud any time, any day, whenever you want! Free fun. Who could ask for more?
