Celebrate Literacy with World Read Aloud Day

Tomorrow is World Read Aloud Day. It was created by LitWorld.

This is from The National Council of Teachers of English on why the read aloud is important – The Power of the World Read Aloud.

Power: Reading, writing and storytelling continue to be the defining way to claim power and one’s own voice.
Community: The Read Aloud lifts a community and shapes it: the stories read, the poems discussed, the articles examined, together create an environment of reflection and trust.
Hope: Reading together assures our children that stories honor past, present and future. They are in the presence of other people’s dreams and can create some of their own too.

It’s a bit late to join in some of the events, but here are a few ideas from Here Wee Read.

  • Attend a read aloud event in your community or at a local library or bookstore.
  • Donate books you no longer want or need to a local organization, school, pediatric office, Little Free Library or shelter.
  • Read aloud a stack of 2 – 5 picture books at home with smaller kids or read aloud a couple of chapters together with older kids.

 

You can still celebrate this wonderful event. It’s for everyone – young and old. Read aloud to someone you love!
