Happy World Read Aloud Day!!

Friday, Feb. 1, 2019 is the 10th annual World Read Aloud Day!! WRAD2019InstaFINAL.png

Join with people of all ages around the world and celebrate the joy of story!

Pull a book off the shelf.

Visit a library.

Stop in a bookstore and find a new treasure. 

A shared reading experience has always been one of my favorite activities in the classroom.

I’m thrilled to be able to read AN INCONVENIENT ALPHABET and talk to students at nine schools! Many thanks to author Kate Messner who has helped classrooms find authors to read and visit via Skype!

Here are a few links to enhance your read aloud day.

And here are a couple outstanding articles about the importance of story and reading aloud.

And if you absolutely can’t find someone to read to today…

there’s always tomorrow…

or the next day…

Why not every day!
