World Read Aloud

For 12 years, World Read Aloud Day, Feb. 3, has called attention to the importance of sharing stories by challenging participants to grab a book, find an audience, and read-aloud! The global effort is now celebrated in over 173 countries and counting. World Read Aloud Day, created by the nonprofit organization LitWorld is all about bringing people together through stories, which is more important than ever this year when the shared experience and connection of reading aloud is so needed in all of our communities.
