Mem Fox is a passionate advocate of reading aloud to children:

"I'd like the police always to have children's books with them in their police cars to read aloud to children whenever they suddenly find themselves in traumatic situations. I'd like every nurse in children's hospitals to have books at their workstations ready to read aloud to children in distress, or to those who just can't sleep..."

Reading Magic - How Your Child Can Learn To Read Before School - And Other Read Aloud Miracles, the book that inspired Australian Opposition Leader Mark Latham's new child literacy program.
