World Read Aloud Day is on March 6



It is incredibly easy to celebrate World Read Aloud Day. All you have to do is read to family, friends, students, colleagues, neighbors, strangers, pets, stuffed animals, etc. The possibilities are endless. 

If you're an educator, I hope you'll connect with classrooms around the world, contact authors and illustrators to arrange Skype visits, and encourage your entire school to read aloud and take action on March 6, 2013.

The World Read Aloud Day event kit will help you plan your  reading and storytelling celebration. 

Worldwide at least 793 million people remain illiterate.
Imagine a world where everyone can read...
