I ‘m trying something new for this episode of the Read-Aloud Revival Podcast. Instead of interviewing a guest, I’m chatting with you one-on-one.

Something I hear about a lot is the struggle it can be to make the transition from picture books to chapter books and novels during read-aloud time. It’s something I’ve struggled with in the past, as well, and I’ve got a few ideas about how to make this as seamless and simple as possible.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • some quick tips for making the transition from picture books to chapter books
  • my very favorite first novels and chapter books
  • and tell you my #1 tippy-top recommendation of them all

Nope- not gonna tell ya. You have to listen to find out. ;)
