Podcast #245 // Sarah Mackenzie on the Read-Aloud Revival

RXBAR is a whole food protein bar. What does that mean? Our bars are made with 100% whole ingredients. We want to be transparent and up front with our customers, which is why we label the core ingredients (egg whites, dates and nuts) on the front of the package and the ingredients that make up texture and taste on the back (100% real cacao, coconut, etc.). Beyond being a go-to snack that checks off a number of nutritional boxes, RXBARs actually taste delicious. We found creating a bar made from real, whole food ingredients actually tastes better than anything out there. We don’t need the fillers, the additives, the chemicals or the added sugar.

What a treat to have Sarah Mackenzie of the Read-Aloud Revival on the show today! Sarah is an author, speaker and podcast host. On the immensely popular Read-Aloud Revival podcast, she helps parents all over the world make meaningful connections with their kids through books. She lives in the Northwest with her husband, Andrew, and she homeschools their six kids.
On this episode Sarah and I chatted about how Sarah became so fascinated with reading aloud, how she came to create her podcast on this same topic, and her newest book, The Read Aloud Family. (This books is already a best seller and it isn’t even released until TODAY!)
During our conversation we touched on:
+How to find great books
+How to read aloud to your family
+How to get kids to listen
+Managing expectations at read-aloud time
+How to pick a book for a span of ages
+And, most importantly, how reading creates connections.
I hope you find this chat as inspiring as I did! Sarah and I laughed and connected over our love of books, and I hope you do, too!
