It is enjoyable and useful even for teenagers (Are students ever too old?) , even for adults. So make a favour to someone by reading aloud to them.
Read a picture book or a chapter of a book you like, or an article in the papers or an entry in the encyclopedia. Examples of great books to share:
- The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
- Love That Dog by Sharon Creech
- Weslandia by Paul Fleischman (Picture book)
