At school, I hated being called upon to read aloud in the class.
I still come out in a cold sweat at the memory of Miss M, the English teacher, rolling her eyes in exasperation at my reading aloud of Titania's line, "Who awakes me from my flowery bed?" from A Midsummer's Night's Dream.
Now, I love to read aloud to the Boy Child.
As does The Brainy One, who has a beautiful reading voice.
None of us is really getting on with Worzel Gummidge.
Is it okay to stop mid-way through?
Next up, Kaspar by Michael Morpurgo.
What do/did you read aloud to your child/ren?
