Great article! Reminds me of a project I did with my 6th graders when I was an elementary school principal. The kids read stories aloud onto cassette tapes that were played on the answering machine of a special phone number -- 528-BOOK. The goal was to provide "read aloud" experiences for pre-schoolers whose parents worked and didn't have much time to read to them. Little kids in the community (or anyone else, for that matter) could call the number and hear the story of the week. It was one of the best projects we ever did and went on for years.
