If you only listen to one episode of the Read-Aloud Revival podcast, let this one be it. This episode is the humdinger of them all, if I do say so myself. ;)

I have been dying to talk to Sarah Clarkson since the Read-Aloud Revival was born! She’s a busy student at Oxford, though, and it took a bit of finagling to get our schedules to play nicely together. Over the Christmas break we made it happen, and now I’m ready to share it with you!

This episode is guaranteed to make your heart rate speed up and energize every single aspect of your read-aloud culture in your home.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • why the Read-Aloud Revival exists
  • why it’s so important to build your family culture around books
  • and what’s really at stake

Even as a young child, you begin to understand that your life is a narrative in which you have the power to live as a hero or a heroine, and that is formed through exposure to literature….”
