For those of you who ever plan on having children, educating children, having nieces and/or nephews, or ever working with children and those of you who like to read, used to like to read, wish you liked to read now, or wish you wished to like to read, you should all make sure to read Jim Trelease's "The Read-Aloud Handbook."

It is amazing.

I've only read chapter three so far, but chapter three alone is worth getting the book.

I mean, did you know that Robert McCloskey who wrote "Make Way for Ducklings" used real ducklings for his models? He bought them and then fed them red wine so that they would slow down enough that he could draw them.

And that is just one little portion of this excellent chapter in what I have heard is a most excellent book.

A very inspiring read.
