Reading aloud is a great way to share great books — and to instill the love of reading in young listeners.

A visit to the Darien, Il Library.  Playin' in the Stacks Delights Children and Families—More than 50 children and families explored Indian Prairie Public Library's renovated youth services area Sunday during Playin' in the Stacks.
An article by Kayla Gregory

This award winning teacher and author has many valuable lessons for young and old alike about the importance of courage, dedication and perseverance. He can inspire large groups as well as small to include more reading and writing in their lives. He can relate the experience of being an author to students with the skill that comes from years in the classroom. He enjoys speaking to all age and grade levels. He is a gifted teacher and a successful author; just the right person to provide a memorable and exciting school visit.

In addition to school visits, Jim Aylesworth is also a successful conference and book event speaker. His appearances with an adult audience serves to inspire and energize adults who work with children. Many teachers have said that after hearing Jim read, they, themselves, will never read his books the same again. Jim Aylesworth's readings (and singing) will resonate to bring new dimensions to their own reading.
