It’s a Beautiful Day to READ ALOUD!

WorldReadAloudDay2012

“I hear the echo of a voice, reading aloud to the nations…
Then I realize it’s not only a voice reading aloud to the nations
But it’s voices reading aloud all over the world…”
– The World Read Aloud Day
by Lesley, from Kenya, LitWorld Friend, Poet and Librarian
Whether you’re in NYC today for the 2012 festivities or snug in your own home, treat yourself and your family to an enriching read-aloud time! It’s a beautiful day for a book … or two … or … three … .

    Many adults, including teachers, stop reading to children after lower elementary school, sometimes even earlier. A common belief seems to be that reading aloud is the predecessor to silent reading and that once children begin to read silently, we should stop reading aloud to them. This is most unfortunate.
