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...Read full review »

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...Read full review »

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...Read full review »

This podcast is so pleasant to listen to! Sarah MacKenzie is encouraging, peaceful, and informative at the same time. She has changed my thoughts on homeschooling and I am so thankful. I always look forward to what she has to say! Such a blessing!

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.

This is a podcast I wish every mom would listen to whether she is a homeschool teacher or not there is something for every mom. Thank you Sara.

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...Read full review »

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!
torahforall via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/18/20
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...Read full review »

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...Read full review »

Episode #163 was incredibly impactful to me! It made me fall in love with this podcast all over again!
rebeccalynn773 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/22/20
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...Read full review »

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...Read full review »
Travisandmaggie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/02/20
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...Read full review »

This podcast has made me LOL and cry an embarrassing number of times. The host, Sarah, and her team are virtually flawless. I’ve never NOT enjoyed an episode and I’ve binged just about all of them. She is inspiring, but in an attainable, down-to-Earth kind of way. Her interview skills and...Read full review »

What a breath of fresh air this podcast is.
JenAbN via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/13/20
I’ve enjoyed listening to this podcast, but there are so many plugs for her paid subscription/membership throughout each episode. Once per episode would be more appropriate!
LaurynMK88 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/20
This podcast is simply fantastic! On Mother’s Day my five year old was asked “what does mom do to relax?”, and he said “listen to Read Aloud Revival!” And it’s so true! This podcast is invigorating! It’s the fresh life I need every two weeks. Sarah is so real, passionate and just like my best...Read full review »

I cannot say enough good things about Sara Mackenzie and the RAR podcast! I have encountered countless book recommendations (I haven’t been disappointed by one yet!!!) along with wisdom, encouragement, and educational insights! I thoroughly enjoy this podcast and my kids do as well!
SirLandrick via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/20
This is my favorite podcast. It is insanely inspiring, and every day I listen, I am encouraged more and more. The only problem is my “to be read” list is miles long. I even dream about what new book I will find to read with my kids.
ss123ssdfgh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/03/20
About 7 years ago I first heard Sarah Mackenzie talk about the importance of reading to your kids and it inspired me to pick up books again. As a mom of two boys who now LOVE books and story I credit a big part of that to this wonderful podcast.
Got2BJoy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/20/20
I discovered Read-Aloud Revival a few weeks ago. As a grandma, it has been fun to hear book recommendations for so many picture books. As I love reading and want to ignite that in my grandchildren, Sara’s enthusiasm and knowledge of reading is a great way to keep that alive. Once I listen to as...Read full review »

Sarah is the best and she is legit. 😉☺️ I am always inspired after listening. She even puts a new spin on things I already know!

Sarah's laughter and smile is contagious and her reading recommendations are wonderful. Finding this podcast at the outset of my homeschooling journey led me to a heavily reading based philosophy and style in homeschooling.

My family and I love listening to The Read Aloud Revival podcast. It’s a fun burst of bookishness that I know I can listen to in the car without worrying about content. My kids and I find reading encouragement and recommendations every single time.

I can’t give my kids the world but through your podcast, I am learning (and even getting comfortable) in giving them the world through reading.

I just discovered this podcast and have been working my way through it from the beginning. I read aloud extensively to my three sons who are now all grown.

This podcast always revives our reading slumps and gives me long lists of books to request at our library. The kids love all the books Sarah suggests and we end up reading these more often than those horrible Disney book adaptations! I would love to hear an episode on read-alouds for ages 5-8...Read full review »

We are all busy and overwhelmed but THIS podcast is an absolute value to stop and listen to with my full heart and mind. It is one of the first resources I share with new moms and families who are considering homeschooling and every one has come back to thank me. Absolutely essential!!
Shjmvkfufuruwgsycj via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/28/19
I have listened to this podcast since I found Sarah and Teaching From Rest a few years ago. I have met her twice, and she’s every bit as genuine and her joy infectious as she seems on the podcast! Listen...you will not be disappointed!
srichardson718 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/26/19
I found this podcast by a happy accident, and it is exactly what I needed to hear. I landed on the re-read episode and I’m encouraging my children to pick books they love to read and READ them AGAIN after hearing that podcast. I am excited to listen to more!
Bekkah Lee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/27/19
I get so excited for this podcast. I love reading and want my daughters share in that pleasure too. Sarah provides so many ideas, jumping off points, suggestions, and enthusiasm for parents like me. Thank you!
