What can a university professor say about the value of reading aloud for future academic and relational success?

A lot, actually. If that professor is also a mother of many, she’ll lend a perspective on fitting read-aloud time into busy family life, and the value of even five minutes a day spent diving into a story with your kids.

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Catherine Pakaluk from Ave Maria University.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • why students who have been read aloud to fare better than their peers in college
  • how she carves out time to make reading aloud a priority as a working mother of seven
  • and why even five minutes a day can add up to a whole heck of a lot of reading
