Swiss Day of Reading Aloud
23 May 2018 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Story Labs joined up with Kinderbuchladen to commemorate the first ever Swiss Day of Reading Aloud. What books, we wondered, are best enjoyed when read out aloud?
1. Books so rich in rhythm and rhyme they are practically music; and
2. Books dripping with verbal comedy.
We went to the new arrivals shelf for some smart, laugh out loud silliness and to the classics shelf for some foot-tapping musicality. (More specifically, to Dr. Seuss, whose birthday is on the American equivalent of the Swiss Day of Reading Aloud and that is no coincidence.)
