Children get to enjoy a really good read aloud even if their parents are busy at the moment. I used this site when my kids were younger in the kitchen while I cooked dinner. We all enjoyed a good book and could talk about it afterward.
Adults and children get to see a person trained in acting or public speaking make a book come to life by reading it with passion and expression. This is a great way for adults and children to learn how to read aloud maybe a little better.
