There is a lack of current research regarding the reasoning behind why preschool teachers are choosing their literature for whole group read-alouds. The primary purpose of this study is to identify why teachers are choosing their literature and what, if any, activities were conducted in addition to reading the story. The research was conducted using 5 Minnesota School Readiness Programs. A survey was electronically distributed to forty-five preschool teachers and 8 surveys were returned. Results of this study indicated over half the participants chose read-alouds to correspond with an overall classroom theme. An overwhelming 94% of surveys indicated that an activity was performed in conjunction with the read-aloud.
