With the days warming up, I like to gather the kids on the lawn to share some books over cold treats. Reading aloud is a great way to keep kids interested in reading over the summer. Kids don’t like to sit for long, so it’s important to pick books that pack some punch. (No pun intended!)
Just like people, books tend to be introverts or extroverts. Extroverted books are meant to be read out loud with dramatic flair, and the more listeners the better.
Here are my picks of best extroverted books for an energetic summer day.
Warning: Be prepared to to amp up the drama! Don’t be surprised if your audience gets in on the action too.
