Reading this book aloud is another great way of sharing the story which is great because that is what the book is all about. Nora starts giving away all her roses to people she meets. Sharing a wonderful story about sharing wonderful things really hammers in the meaning of the holiday season, and really how we should be towards everyone, all the time.
A difficult book to read just in your mind because of the non-sensical words and phrases, this book is an enjoyment read aloud amongst a group of friends who are also fans. Laugh as you stumble over difficult names that alone are almost impossible to just spell, let alone pronounce! Be sure to give every character a very funny voice as well since it is all nonsense anyway!
This was the only graphic novel that was suggested by one of our book club members. The interesting thing about graphic novels is that the dialog you are reading is very easy to understand how to say it. You can see how the character is expressing themselves in their facial expressions as well as how the words are written and the type of word bubble they are written in! It made us all want to go have a group reading of the latest Spiderman comic!
A book that is very much intended to be read aloud is one that has wonderful art that follows the story. This book was originally printed in a Norwegian language that no longer exists! The beauty of this story comes not only from the translated tale, but also from the amazing paintings that are on every page!
Fairy tales always seem to have a place in the best kind of stories read aloud. Perhaps that is because many of them started only as spoken stories, best told around a fire. Imagine the only entertainment is the spoken word. No TV or radio, just storytellers. So of course fairy tales would be perfect for this! They were created with the purpose of being spoken! And The Sword in the Stone is just a classic fairy tale!
A book so beautifully written deserves to be enjoyed the best way possible. What better way than to share such beautiful words than by telling the story aloud! This is a story about the perception of beauty and the stigma that comes with being different. The inner beauty that shines from this book comes from the main character and narrator who tells his story in such an uplifting and wonderful way, the story simply HAS to be told aloud!
This is a book that is definitely made to be read aloud. It is a book that not only teaches the listener (specifically little girls) a new way to learn the alphabet, but also how they are expected to behave in that time. Not only is this an interesting book on how women were expected to grow up and behave, but it is also a wonderful way to introduce someone to the alphabet. B is for brain washing!!!
Favor Johnson is one of those holiday stories that begs to be read aloud. Not only does this book have accompanying watercolors, but it began as a radio broadcast! So you know that this was always meant to be spoken aloud! It is about a man who is used to being solitary and self-sufficient, but finds himself in a situation where is receives help from a stranger. This unexpected good deed drives this story of thankfulness and gratitude towards others. Perfect for reading aloud while snacking on a fruit cake with family and friends!
