Today is World Read Aloud Day

Posted on March 9th, 2011 by Carolyn Hart in Storytime Standouts Shares Early Literacy News and Commentary

According to LitWorld.org, nearly 1 billion people entered this century unable to read a book or sign their name.

World Read Aloud Day is about showing the world that all people should be able to read and write. World Read Aloud Day enlists the support of children, teens and adults in celebrating the power of words. It is intended to create a community of readers advocating for every child’s right to a safe education along with access to books and technology.

We hope that by celebrating this day in communities around the globe, we will convey the message that all children have the right to read and to write and, by exchanging words and ideas, we can change the world.
