What would happen if we read a book a day with our kids?
That’s the idea we’re exploring today in a brand new episode of the Read-Aloud Revival podcast. And we’re also issuing a challenge: we dare you to read a picture book a day with your kids – for a week, a month… or more.
And you’ll even hear some profound insights, like how a good picture book is like a baked potato. 🥔 😆
All the details are in today’s episode.
In this episode, you’ll hear:
- Why it’s worthwhile to read a book a day with our kids of all ages (so MANY reasons)
- What to read with kids of all ages—you know we have lots of ideas!
- Printable trackers for your own book-a-day challenge
