world read aloud day 2014

Wednesday March 5th is Word Read Aloud Day.

In an effort to raise awareness about “the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories,” LitWorld has designated the first Wednesday in March as World Read Aloud Day.

At this stage in my life, with one pre-reader and one very beginning reader in our home, nearly every day is read aloud day. Still, it’s interesting when we mix it up a little, and LitWorld has some suggestions for doing just that

But even if your kids can read for themselves, this is a great excuse to read aloud to them. Older readers benefit from frequent read alouds. They may also benefit from learning how blessed they are to have access to education and books. 

To whom will you read aloud on Wednesday?
