Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Two of our volunteers, Chris Martin and Patricia Briggs, posted a delightful video on YouTube of them reading aloud Dr. Seuss' Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Oh, the Places You'll Go! video image

Click on the above image to see their fun special effects as they include their two dogs in their reading.

They also capture the type of banter and open-ended questions we do when we read aloud to kids. The only thing missing is kids answering back and laughing!

Notice how carefully they keep the audio clear, and at the 13:52 mark they also walk through the creation of a related craft, just as we do after we read aloud books at our reading clubs. Click the below image to jump right to their craft!

GREAT NEW RESOURCES & VIDEOS
ON OUR HOMEPAGE:
MRS. P'S MAGIC LIBRARY!

At www.readingtokids.org we continue to feature new read-aloud videos like the above and past ones like those you see in the upper right of this email newsletter.

Click the image of each book in the upper right to view videos of those books being read aloud. You can also click this link to find our reading guides for each book.

Today we added links to Mrs. P's Magic Library, featuring the fantastic Kathy Kinney (perhaps best known as Mimi on The Drew Carey Show) reading aloud both macabre and heartwarming books.

She also has a page of Classic stories read aloud by Mrs. P (with other fun activities, too) and her own Mrs. P's YouTube channel.
