Summer Book Study: The Read Aloud Handbook

Summer Book Study: Read Aloud Handbook

As many of you will recall, in previous summers, I have teamed up with other early education bloggers to host a Summer Book Study. You can see the previous Book Study posts here:

This year’s Book Study will be on The Read Aloud Handbook (7th Edition), by Jim Trelease. The 7th Edition is available through Amazon (Print or Kindle) and the iBooks store. To find out more about the book and author, read the Pre-K Pages announcement here.

How to join the book study

While the Book Study will be hosted by 5 Pre-K – 1st grade bloggers, anyone can join! If you have an education blog of your own, you can blog about the chapters and link up your post to the Book Study using a Linky tool. If you are not a blogger, feel free to write your comments about the book on each chapter’s host blog. We want everyone to participate – no one is left out!

        No worries. I had just bought the old edition but have already gotten the new one as well. Thanks anyway. I am excited to be part of the study.

      Tracie, I don’t know what the exact differences are between this edition and previous ones, but Trelease says each time a new edition comes out, the text changes by about 40%. He mentions some of the changes in this version on page xxii of the introduction. Hope that helps!
