2013-2015 AISLE Read Alouds Too-Good-To-Miss

AISLEReadAloudsRead Alouds Too-Good-To-Miss is a project of the Association of Indiana School Library Educators (AISLE). Each year, a committee of media specialists, public librarians, classroom teachers, reading teachers, principals, bookstore operators, and/or university faculty members is formed to develop five read-aloud lists: one for primary age students, one for upper elementary, one for middle school students, one for high school students, and an ageless. There is also a Buried Treasures list for 2013-2015, for books that are a bit older but warrant mention for their outstanding read-aloud qualities. The lists are publicized and distributed to Indiana schools to encourage sustained reading and oral sharing of literature among teachers and students.

The ultimate purpose of the Read-Aloud Books Too Good To Miss program is to promote a love of reading and books and to instill and nurture lifelong reading habits in Indiana students.
