How to Make Your Children Rich!  The Power of Reading Aloud
Reading is at the very core of education.  Countless studies have shown that the single most important factor in helping your children become successful learners is reading to them.  A read aloud time with Mom or Dad helps your children associate reading with pleasure.  It builds vocabulary and provides background knowledge for other life experiences.  A regular story time can be an aid to building character within your children.  It provides a positive reading role model through Mom, Dad, or a sibling.  And reading aloud exposes your children to more challenging literature than they would likely choose themselves; therefore, it helps them make wise reading choices later in life.
    Many parents are apprehensive to start a read aloud time.  Children of varying ages can make it especially challenging to choose books that the oldest through the youngest will all enjoy hearing.  Busy schedules get in the way of establishing a regular story time.  And parents are often concerned about which books are appropriate.
    This session will attempt to answer all of your questions and provide practical tips for establishing a read aloud time in your family.  A home schooling father of 4 children, an elementary, language arts teacher for 23 years, and the director of development for The Family Vision Library,  Jamie Stull brings a wealth of both personal and professional experience to the subject of reading aloud. 

"You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be –
I had a mother who read to me."
— Strickland Gillilan

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with James Stull and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
