February 23, 2016 is World Read Aloud Day.

Every year World Read Aloud Day calls global attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories.

Scholastic is the Sponsor of Wold Read Aloud Day 2016. Here is a link to the Scholastic website where you can find information on hosting your own read-aloud event.

Reading aloud to your children and grandchildren has been proven to make them better readers for life. It expands children’s knowledge and imagination and helps with their concentration and verbal skills.  All of these things can help your kids excel in school and life. Plus it’s just a fun thing to do.

  1. Fabulous! Must organise some children and some books! Fortunately I pick my grandchildren up from kindy and school that day, so I’ll be set. I wonder what we’ll read. Can’t wait! 🙂
