Join Raising Readers’ Read Aloud Group

| Reading Aloud, 20th Anniversary

Children fall in love with books because of the memories created when they snuggle up and read with someone they love. During this time, we know families are looking for unique ways to do that. We’re happy to invite you to join our Read Aloud Facebook Group, a new place to connect with Raising Readers books as you and your family navigate your ‘new normal’.

We’ll be posting read-alouds of Raising Readers books regularly. Guest readers will include our program’s pediatric and early literacy advisors and the book creators themselves. Followers, particularly those here in Maine, may have some of these books in their home libraries to follow along with and will recognize some familiar doctor and author faces!

Thank you to our publishing partners, who have temporarily relaxed fair use policies. This allows us to make this video content available to you in a closed group.

Videos posted to the Read Aloud Group include:

There’s a Bear on My Chair by Ross Collins, read by Raising Readers’ Clinical Advisor Dr. Gabe Civiello

Baabwaa and Wooliam by David Elliot and Illustrated by Melissa Sweet, read by Raising Readers’ Clinical Advisor Dr. Jenn Dubail
