Bonnie of @MrsStraitsClass mentioned that she read aloud to her kids every day.
I teach elementary actually but even if I didn’t, I’d still read aloud every day. I love using accents and fun voices. 🙂

Best Bedtime Picture Books for Kids
Thank you to Susan Marx for emailing me this lovely poem full of some of my favorite children’s books for young children. Reading aloud is a passion for her and Barbara and they have penned a book about it.
Her lovely poem took me down memory lane at bedtime with my kids. We didn’t read all these great picture books and board books, but we enjoyed many of them over and over through the years!!
Thanks for this trip! What bedtime books or read aloud books are your favorites? Did you spot any in the poem?
