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

QUOTES TO REMEMBER:

They’re seeing, with each story, an unqualified hero who overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds to get what they want or need. That’s a really beautiful thing for them to witness again and again.
