The Enchanted Hour, by Wall Street Journal children’s book reviewer, essayist, and author Meghan Cox Gurdon, expresses the value of “The Miraculous Power of Reading Aloud in the Age of Distraction”. Listen, as Meghan explains the abundance of brain science that validates all the wonderful benefits of reading aloud, not only to children, but surprisingly also to the senior members of society. You’ll love the colorful and familiar metaphors, that she uses, to make her points, as to why reading out loud can make such a profound difference in our lives, in so many ways. Increased attention span, vocabulary development, language development, and even math skills, are enhanced. You’ll want to listen to this as often as you can. It is just that good!
