World Read Aloud Day is about taking action to show the world that the right to read and write belongs to all people. World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words, especially those words that are shared from one person to another, and creates a community of readers advocating for every child’s right to a safe education and access to books and technology.” ~from the LitWorld website
A bunch of children’s writers got together last year to read aloud to classrooms over Skype, and I am happy to be a part of this great group this year! If you’d like to schedule a Skype session with me to read to your classroom or library on March 7th send me an email! If you’d like to see all the other great writers who are participating you can find the list here. The site only lists To Find A Wonder, but I would be happy to read from either Wonder or Hapenny Magick.
Thank you to Kate Messner, author extraordinaire, for putting this together!
