What are you doing to celebrate World Read Aloud Day tomorrow? I'm reading to preschoolers - and although that's what I do every day, tomorrow it will be extra special, as people everywhere read aloud to children in an effort to develop literacy practices in vulnerable communities. This is just one of the efforts sponsored by LitWorld, a non-profit organization working to build literacy skills around the world. From their website:
Check out this cool early literacy event happening at the Pikes Peak Library District: The Countdown to Kindergarten Carnival! Designed to teach parents and caregivers the 5 practices that lead to early literacy learning, children are also allowed in on the fun! The first carnival takes place this Saturday, Jan. 14, at the Fountain Library and more carnivals will be held at other locations.
