Episode Info:

In today’s episode of the Read-Aloud Revival Podcast, I’m sharing a master class straight out of Read-Aloud Revival Premium about how to create a book club culture in your home.

For most of us, the books we read for school growing up were not the same books we read under our covers with a flashlight past our bedtime.

But we can do something better.

We can invite our kids into a reading experience that will help them fall in love with books and become readers for life.

Less like school, more like your favorite book club.

In this episode, you’ll hear:
  • the importance of knowing WHY you want to raise readers
  • how to nurture and protect your kids’ love of reading
  • why reading is not broccoli

I also answer a listener question about… what to do when your kids lose interest part-way through a book…
