“There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.”
— Jacqueline Kennedy
Today, March 7th, has been designated World Read Aloud Day. This celebration, started by the team at Lit World, encourages young readers and writers to share their words and thoughts with the world. From the website:
World Read Aloud Day is about taking action to show the world that the right to read and write belongs to all people. World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words, especially those words that are shared from one person to another, and creates a community of readers advocating for every child’s right to a safe education and access to books and technology.
That’s something you can get behind, right? And participating is easy. Click on over here to register, and then…read aloud with your child! That’s it. There’s no financial cost, no long-term commitment, no forms to fill out (anyone else channeling a life insurance commercial right about now??).
And if you’re the social media type, follow along on Facebook or Twitter (hashtag #wrad)
