Parent Resources: Podcasts

This month I plan to post resources to help parents as they try to raise a reader.  Perhaps through the resources I share, you’ll find something to help you engage your child in reading over the summer (and beyond!).  Download and enjoy a few video or audio resources for your perusal today:       

Reading Rockets Check out this link to a multitude of video interviews with renowned children’s authors and illustrators.  The list includes Bill Martin, Jr., Judy Blume, Marc Brown, Christopher Paul Curtis, and Mary Pope Osborne to name a few!

Read, Write, Think One of my favorite podcast series is “Chatting with Books” by Emily Manning on the Read, Write, Think website.  You can subscribe to it through I-tunes.  She chats with kids, parents, and teachers about the best in children’s literature for ages 4-11. In each podcast, she typically interviews a popular author as well.  I’ve found many new books for my kids (and myself) through this podcast series.

NPR Podcasts National Public Radio (NPR) provides podcasts of author interviews, book reviews, and other goodies.

    Thanks for these links … I will add them to our collection of audio and ebooks on the Wiki. Podcasts are different than audio books, but they offer a similar dimension to enjoying reading by listening.
