Search the National Council of Teachers of English outstanding ReadWriteThink site for both lesson ideas that use the traditional read-aloud and interactive read-alouds.  This site is a wonderful source of lesson plans and book suggestions. Highly recommended.

See, for example, the very generally applicable (K to 12) traditional read-aloud strategy guide that includes selection criteria, before, during,  and after teaching strategies, as well as recommended further reading.

One of the recommended articles is this research-based article on implementing interactive read-alouds by the literacy scholars D. Fisher, J. Flood, D. Lapp, & N. Frey:  Interactive Read Alouds: Is there a Common Set of Implementation Practices? (The Reading Teacher 58.1, Sept. 2004)  Although a scholarly approach to this topic, the article contains lists of recommended texts that are still popular in 2017.
