I really liked this post from BookMoot, so I am going to link it here, but also quote the advice and rules here as well:
My advice and rules for newbie read-alouders 1. You HAVE to like the book you are going to read. 2. Read the book before hand 3. Try to have the kids "below" you. If you are sitting in a chair, get them on the floor. If they are in chairs, stand. Maybe this is just me but I like to be at a "commanding" elevation if possible. 4. Know what kind of time frame you are expected to fill. 5. Make eye contact with your listeners while you are reading. 6. Have fun! If you are not enjoying yourself, no one else will.
These are not my words, but I totally agree with all of them
Do you have other advise or rules? Any books you would recommend? Feel free to comment!
