This may be one of the most delightful conversations we’ve had yet on the Read-Aloud Revival. If you haven’t met Rea Berg yet… you’re going to love me for introducing you to her. :) And if you know who she is, you don’t need me to blab on here -you just want to cut right to the interview!

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • reading aloud for history
  • nurturing the soul of your child
  • and how books have changed Rea’s life (and how they very well may change the world)

(If you’re looking for the FREE download I mentioned on the show that has the best tips for simplifying your homeschool and focusing on what matters most, you can grab that here: Hope for the Overwhelmed Homeschooler.)
