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:
"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. By raising our voices together on this day we show the world’s children that we support their future: that they have the right to read, to write, and to share their words to change the world."
So what are YOU doing tomorrow?
