Read Aloud Picture Book! 📚 Built to Last by Minh Lê

Two friends build their wildest imaginations in real life every day! When their latest creation comes tumbling down, have they reached their breaking point? Follow along with me on this heart-warming adventure! Built to Last by Minh Lê, Illustrated by Dan Santat If you’re looking to get your child excited about reading, check out The Reading Den… with Shen. With over a million views and a library of 400 videos, it’s the place to go for recommendations and read-alouds of the most fun and prestigious picture books that you and your family can enjoy together. For going on fifty years, Shen has been a certified reading specialist and classroom teacher who has taught all sorts of children in schools across the country. Coast to coast, from Harlem, New York to Irvine, California, Shen is a passionate advocate for literacy with a special superpower: a boundless energy and enthusiasm that inspires kids of all ages to develop a lifelong love for words, books, and stories. The concept behind the reading den is simple. Every week Shen selects a new or notable picture book to present and read to her audience. When Shen awards her seal of approval to a book, it means that the text and illustrations are appropriate for even the youngest readers. The books she brings to her den contain positive themes like family, friendship, triumph of the underdog, and teamwork – always with big, splashy pictures that tickle a child’s imagination. Often, Shen picks stories with engaging rhyme schemes and other types of word play, designed to sharpen letter and word identification skills. Shen then presents the books in a way that draws children in, employing a variety of fun voices and hilarious gestures. Her colorful style is uniquely appealing to children from other countries and cultures. From the US to the UK to Asia to India, The Reading Den has viewers and subscribers from all around the globe. But whether or not English is their first language, kids who visit Shen in her den will become stronger, more confident readers, with an increased excitement for words and stories. Shen’s “cinematographer” is her husband James, who has been a professional photographer for over sixty years, capturing weddings, bar mitzvahs and the most beautiful tableaus across the countryside. Jim also has a superpower, his innate sense of rhythm… as his steady camera work energetically follows the book’s text and drawings with occasional cutaways to Shen’s real time performance. To act as an added incentive for young readers, every month Shen gives away a book from her enormous library (over 2,000 picture and story books) to one of her subscribers. Both Jim and Shendel are over 80 years old and happily married for 59 of those years! The Reading Den is a passion project for these two soulmates and they look forward to seeing you there!
