Happy Summer & Keep Reading Together!
Hicklebee’s Read-Aloud Summer is inspired by Alice Ozma’s *The Reading Promise, and our own memories of the special times we’ve read with-or been read to by-our kids, spouse, significant others, pets and stuffed animals, etc.
We invite you to engage, re-engage, continue engaging in all that the read-aloud experience has to offer. Recommended for anyone who can pick up a book, magazine, cereal box, instruction manual, (you get the idea) –from the very young, who can “read” their story through pictures or their memory of a favorite book, to… well, there just isn’t a top age limit.
We've put together events to enhance and encourage the Read Aloud experience - Story Times with the amazing Margaret More, *Reader's Theater with some of our favorite authors & illustrators, M. Sarah Klise, Mac Barnett & Gennifer Choldenko. We have some special guest authors & illustrators joining us throughout the summer- John Rocco, Amy Krouse Rosenthal. We're working on a read-aloud evening for adults. Stay tuned for details.
- Happy Reading Together!
*The Reading Promise: My Father & the Books We Shared, (Grand Central Pub. $14.99) “This book is about the act of reading, and the time spent doing it. This book is about the 3,218 nights my father and I spent reading anything and everything we could find. The books are important, but the conversations they started, and the bonds they created, are what really matter.” -author, Alice Ozma
