You Tube Read-Aloud Stories

During these unsettling days when schools and many businesses are closed, kids are missing their friends and their daily schedules in school.

Hi Everyone!  I just wanted to let you know that I have posted two read-aloud stories for kids on my new You Tube Channel, Creating Smart Readers.  (Sorry, I am having trouble attaching a direct link but you can cut and paste the link below into your browser if you experience trouble.

During these unsettling days when schools and many businesses are closed, kids are missing their friends and their daily schedules in school.  So I’ve decided to do what I love to do – read my favorite picture books out loud.  A new face and voice just might be welcomed.

So far, I’ve posted three stories.

  • The Firekeeper’s Son, a story about trustworthiness set in ancient Korea
  • Don’t Need Friends, a story about an unlikely friendship in a junkyard
  • Henry’s Map, a story about a tidy pig who makes a map of his farm

Also, I am including Read-Aloud Guides for each story here if you want to download them and use the ideas to enhance the stories with your children.  The beauty of You Tube is that you can listen to the stories as many times as you like and it is completely free.

Here are the two Read-Aloud Guides:

Don’t Need Friends

Firekeepers Son

Henry

My plan is to continue adding stories for you and your child’s enjoyment.  Please contact me with any questions about using the Read-Aloud Guides. “Happy Reading!”
