YMB #49 The Read Aloud Family: A Conversation with Sarah Mackenzie


Sarah Mackenzie is on a mission — a mission to help every family know that the importance of reading aloud goes beyond building bigger test scores and better vocabularies. The importance of reading aloud goes to the very heart of the relationships in your home.

Join Pam and Sarah on the podcast as they chat why this is even more relevant to our culture today than it was 20 years ago, practical tips on how to get it done (even with a bunch) of kids, and the books that Sarah and Pam can never agree to like. The gloves are coming off on this episode — don’t miss it.

  • I love the questions Sarah asks her kids when they read a book i.e. who is courageous in this story. Does Sarah have a list of example questions to ask to help get my mind in that habit?

    • Pam Barnhill says:

      She used to have a PDF for sale but I couldn’t find it on the site. I think her book is your best bet — there are many in there.
