There are numerous resources for parents when it comes to learning about dialogic reading and reading to their children in general. The best known authority on reading out loud is undoubtable Jim Trelease. His book The Read-aloud Handbook is now in the sixth edition and still going strong. As an original proponent of reading out loud to small children as a means to improve thinking skills and communications, he made the ideas of reading out loud a more main stream concept. Since his start, more has been discussed about reading out loud and the best ways to use it as a tool.
