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.

  1. These lists are great! It’s so easy to place holds for these books and saves me time in the library with my 2 littles ages 3 and 1. Your recommended reading lists are always sure to be a gold mine. Thanks for taking the time to put together this ready to read list!

    1. Wonderful! Thanks so much Danielle for sharing your experience with the Ready to Read lists. If you are ever in a real hurry and need books fast, you can always try a Bunny Book Bag. It is canvas tote full of 20 picture books or 12 board books, you just grab the bag and go! Plus, there no fines! Here are the details http://www.imcpl.org/readytoread/?p=236.

      You can see an index of all Ready to Read lists at http://www.indypl.org/readytoread/?page_id=11502. And don’t forget about the Summer Reading Program! We have lots of great books, as you know, but there are several fun family programs happening at all of our branches this summer too.
