"Nearly 1 billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their name. What would you miss most if you could not read or write? Imagine your world without words." - LitWorld.org
Lit World is imagining a world in which all children can learn to read and write. In an effort to promote this goal, they have declared today "World Read Aloud Day."
What will you do to celebrate? I have 6 storytimes to perform today, so I will be reading aloud to approximately 90 children.
Reading aloud to even one child, every day, makes a world of difference.
