    Trusted Resource

    Finding quality literature for our children can be a daunting task. Finding appropriate titles to fit your child’s reading ability and interest is an ever changing target. Sarah provides resources to assist parents in finding just the right book to capture your child’s attention.

    Love this podcast!

    I’m grateful to Sarah Mackenzie for starting this movement for today’s parents who are searching for an antidote to the typically “crazy busy” family style most live- a style that often leaves us drained and breathless: enter read-alouds, slowing down, appreciation for word and picture and the savoring of Family time! After years of listening to this podcast, I’ve recently joined RaR premium and am so excited to be a part of it!

    So inspiring!

    This is one of my top five favorite podcasts! Every time I listen I’m encouraged, and inspired. I love all the book recommendations by Sarah and by the kids at the end of each episode. I keepMy local library very busy with all of my hold requests :)

    Always Encouraging

    We are a homeschool family, and I just get so jazzed up and refilled by listening to this podcast! It’s like my “mom time” when I can’t actually get away for mom time. It has helped me refine the idea and goals for my family culture. Parenting, teaching, reading aloud, this podcast is wonderful for them all! I have relistened multiple times, and will continue to do so. I do hope that Sarah continues to be the sole hostess however, I’mnot a fan of multiple commentators as a regular format.

    Warm/Fuzzy/Informative

    This podcast is so rich. I have lost count of the reading recommendations that I have used that have proven successful with my kids. It is not often that you find such a resource that is warm, inviting and full of richness in terms of resources all in one place. Keep up the great work Sarah and team!!!!

    Read the books, listen to the show, soak it all up!

    This is my favorite podcast of all time. Sarah, you lift me up every time I hear your voice. I’ve read both of your books and only started listening to the podcast so I could get unlimited encouraging wisdom from you once the books were finished! Thank you for helping this frazzled homeschool mom of four find inner peace and joy in the most important areas of life. I love your approach and priorities!

    Encouraging Messages for Family Reading Culture

    Sarah Mackenzie’s podcast is my go-to listen for homeschool encouragement. She’s helped our family to develop a “book club culture” that encourages a love of books in my children, my husband, and myself. Her voice encourages me when doubts regarding homeschooling creep in. Homeschooling for us is about enjoying our children and sharing life together. I highly recommend giving this a listen.

    Love it!

    This was my favorite podcast for a long time. In the last year or so it feels more like an advertisement for her premium membership and less of what it used to be. I love the earlier episodes and there are still some great gems on here but it isn’t what it once was.

    LOVE THIS!!

    As an author, speech-pathologist and mom of two young kids... I am so excited I came across this podcast! It's so wonderful that Sarah has brought this concept to the podcast world! I have always been an advocate for using books to grow great kids. My clinical training is how to use books to teach kids to talk, but as a mom, I've also realized how much books open-up conversations to *everything*!!! I love the concept of this show and can't wait to listen to more episodes! Thank you Sarah for providing us with this invaluable podcast!

    Life-changing

    Not sure what I was expecting, but this podcast has changed our lives. It has given me the inspiration to do a complete overhaul on how we homeschool and has rekindled the passion I had lost for reading aloud to my children. I can’t thank you enough for the podcast, Sarah, Courtney and Kara!

    Incredible!

    This is now my absolute favorite podcast! I did not grow up reading very much. I literally read the cliff notes versions of all the classics just to get through school. In my pursuit to teach my children to read I found this podcast and it has changed everything. As a family we now read 5 or 6 books together everyday and I’ve started reading on my own for pleasure. This podcast has opened up a whole new world for me that I never knew I could love so much. Thank you!

    Life-Changing

    Sarah, thank you for making the most wonderful resources. I did not grow up in a family of readers and had zero plans of ever reading a book on my own or setting foot in a library after college. The Read-Aloud Family has been one of the most inspiring books I’ve read since becoming a mom. I only wish I’d read it sooner! Because of your incredible resources (podcast, website, book, and book recommendations), my children and I are beginning to fall in love with books together and it’s such a beautiful thing to witness and experience with them. Reading aloud to my children has been the single most impactful thing we have implemented to bring more harmony and peace into our home. Your podcast is my favorite podcast! Oh- and you totally need to get into recording audiobooks or making YouTube videos of some kids read aloud picture books. Your voice would be perfect for it!!! Thanks for all you guys do to put out some great material. You are changing lives for the better!

    Fabulous! Review from secular public school mom

    Absolutely wonderful podcast! Listening to it, I feel like I’ve found my tribe. Sarah is a fantastic host who asks interesting, thoughtful questions and then actually listens to the answers (podcast hosts often interrupt their guests which makes me crazy!) It is a Christian podcast but I find religious themes only arise every now and again and, since this isn’t my faith background, I respectfully let them pass (if you’re like me, you’ve felt alienated by a lot of Christian homeschool resources — this one feels much more inclusive!) Sarah also references homeschooling a lot but even so, every episode is a treasure trove for parents & kids no matter what their educational context may be. Overall: love love love! A must listen for all parents!

    Excellent podcast

    As a homeschooling mama of two, I find this podcast not only informative but also fun and inspirational. It has been a boon to our school as well as our family life in general and really lit a fire under us in the read aloud realm. Years of experience and sheer passion combine to make this one an invaluable resource for any family...or really anyone who knows children. Thanks!!

    Used to be amazing, but now so much of it is an ad for her premium membership ($)

    Sarah MacKenzie’s podcast was absolutely brilliant in its first episodes. I learned so much, gained many resources for great books to read aloud to my children of different ages, and was very inspired to pursue truth and beauty with my children through reading aloud. Unfortunately, I have found that I can’t listen to the recent podcasts all the way through anymore because they are filled with large, long plugs for her Read Aloud Revival Premium Membership. My family of seven simply can not afford this RAR Premium at this time, and, though I understand and respect that this podcast is a major business for Sarah MacKenzie and her family, it is disappointing to consistently hear long ads for her premium membership instead of hearing the inspiring content she used to share with everyone. I go back and listen to those fantastic first episodes from time to time (especially #44 about Fear and Magic in Children’s Books), and I am so thankful for those.
