Reading Aloud and Fond Family Feelings

I read aloud to my boys all through high school. At one point my eldest balked at the thought of a read aloud with his mom so I told him that my Honors English teacher in public school read aloud to my class (true story). About a month ago my kids told me how glad they are that we homeschooled them. They are now 26 and 28 years old. I asked them what they remembered best and they said the reading aloud. I think reading aloud is the intersection of fond family feelings plus academics which makes it the fondest memory of homeschooling.

I didn't read aloud over the summer or during the month of December, but I did read aloud four days a week, for about a half hour per day. I'm pretty sure I perfected the art of reading with my eyes closed when I was drowsy. I do suggest a cup of coffee first, for sure!

To start reading aloud, I suggest choosing books from my College Bound Reading List.
