Great Websites for Read Aloud Books & Read to Me Stories

Free Read Aloud Books for Kids

Listening to a book helps kids to develop better concentration and listening skills, engages their imagination, increases their vocabulary and enhances their desire to be a reader as they grow.

I love to encourage parents to read to their child each day. That 15 minutes of storytime has so many wonderful benefits!

In addition to parent/child read-aloud time, families can also include online read alouds and audio books as part of their child's literacy activities. These online books can really help to increase the time your kids spend reading and being read to -- use them in the car when your running errands or in the evening while while you're preparing dinner.

And a BIG bonus is that they are all FREE!

Yep, free stories online for the kiddos (pretty great huh!)

The Details: Barnes and Noble has a really nice selection of very well known (and many award winning) children's books. The voices of the readers are nice to listen to and kids will recognize many of their favorites.

free-kids-books-signI am disappointed with how the site chooses to show the book as it's read. You are only shown some of the illustrations and the pictures move as the story is read aloud. I find this very distracting. There is also no text shown as the book is read (I always think it's better to have the text shown in order to offer kids the opportunity for word recognition).

Other great titles include Green Eggs and Ham & The Hungry Caterpillar!

The Details: I love the classic voices of many of the readers (seriously! James Earl Jones reads To Be a Drum & Betty White reads Harry the Dirty Dog). The books are read via video so the kids get to see the actor before the book begins. The illustrations are slightly animated. There is no text shown during the reading of the book (as I said before, I really wish they would put the text up on the screen for the kids).

One of the BIG BONUSES on this site -- each book has Related Activities that are offered and an Activity Guide that you can download too! I love both of these extras as they offer some great questions that you can discuss with your child to reinforce listening and comprehension skills. - also Rainbow Fish, bad case of stripes

In addition to the two pictured above, some of my other favorites on this site include Harry the Dirty Dog, A Bad Case of Stripes, and The Polar Express.

The Details: A well-known and well-established site, Storynory has been offering a new story each week since 2005 so they have quite a collection! The readers have wonderful voices and you can find many great fables and fairy tales on this site.

FWIW, I've looked through the Waters book

It's full of good points about basic technique, but not really what I would consider a treasure trove of new ideas or exciting recipes
I generally get new ideas by looking through the cookbooks I have, most of which deal with specific cuisines (e.g., Mexican, Spanish, Moroccan, Italian) or by searching online for recipes using ingredients I already have on hand
so, I will often decide what to cook after the shopping has been done rather than shop with a specific dish or recipe in mind. one thing I like about having cookbooks representing a variety of cuisines its that I can get a quick overview of how different cultures treat the same ingredient

Any good Spanish classes in LA?

I'm looking for a good Spanish class in the LA area - Culver City, Palms, Santa Monica - Westside if possible. I love to travel and I'm looking into Spanish-speaking countries. I have had several years of Spanish, but know I need some classes to get me into conversation. Anything you suggest will be helpful - even books, CDs, or online courses.
