365 Days of Reading: Tip #26 - Read-Alouds on YouTube
Parents need a break every once in awhile. One way to get yourself a quick break without inducing parental guilt over too much screen time is to allow your child a few minutes with a read-aloud book on YouTube.
Many contemporary and classic books are available (see my posts about The Snowy Day and Goodnight Moon) on YouTube channels, but the quality and content will vary depending on the presenter.
Before you allow your small child to watch ANYTHING on YouTube, you will of course want to screen it yourself. The best read-aloud videos will come from Reading Specialists and classroom teachers. SammyStoryShop's channel is a great place to start.
