Episode 7: How to Read Aloud to Your Active Toddler

A common dilemma for parents of toddlers is that, though they would love to read-aloud to their young children, it’s difficult to get a super active, bursting-with-energy toddler to sit still long enough to get through even one book, let alone several.  Having done a lot of research on reading aloud to small children and testing different methods out on my own toddlers, I’ve come up with 6 Simple Strategies to get my little guys to sit still and read with me.  In this episode, I’m going to pass these tricks along to you in the hopes that they help make reading aloud with your active toddler a fun and positive experience for both of you.   Click HERE for the TRANSCRIPT, the FULL LIST OF BOOKS AND TOYS mentioned in this episode, and all FREE PRINTABLES.      Click HERE to join our mailing list!  Get in touch via email: Get in touch on Instagram: @exquisitelyeverafter All other information can be found in the blog post for this episode:     If you liked this episode, please subscribe, leave a review, and tell your friends!  Happy Reading!       Exquisitely Ever After is a podcast about reading children’s literature to cultivate kind, intelligent, and successful kids.  Host Christina Phillips-Mattson is a writer, educator, and mother of two little boys who received her Ph.D. in children’s and young adult literature from Harvard University.
