Lee Hall's insight:

This is so important. It isn't just important for mothers to read aloud. It is very important that fathers take a turn too.

Sirenetta Leoni's curator insight, November 23, 2013 6:40 PM

All voice actors should be reading aloud for 15 minutes daily for practice anyway, so if you're not doing this already with your kids, you really need to make the time to do it. It also happens to be a great way to test out and practice dialects and characters; your kids are usually more forgiving than the reviewers on Audible and Amazon.

If your grandchildren, nieces or nephews live far away, there's no reason why you can't Skype-read to them...or spend 15 minutes daily recording a book that you can send them when it's completed.

And if you don't have kids in your life, your local library or school would probably love to have a professional voice actor come in and read to students. Here are tips from the SAG Foundations BookPals for reading aloud: http://bookpals.net/ten-tips-for-reading-aloud/

...and they all lived happily ever after!

The proof is in the reading.  And making it a daily practice.

We know this, but it bears repeating, and repeating and repeating!!!!
