Today is World Read Aloud day - LitWorld is a foundation which is trying to help those who can not read. We can change our world one word at a time. Can you believe millions of adults and children can not read! They have not been given the skill that many of us cherish - Think about how many books we have read, how many worlds we have escaped too, how many colorful characters we have met because of books.
Now imagine what it would be like to not be able to read.. my heart hurts for those people. BUT we can all help whether its reading to your child's class or just making a donation on the LitWorld website. We have the power to make change happen!
Join Pam Allyn on Scholastic’s Facebook page from 4pm ET to 4:45pm on March 7th, 2012 as she hosts a live chat — live from The Scholastic Store! She’ll be answering your questions, offering prompts and ideas of my own, and talking about her tips and experiences reading aloud to kids.
And, join the conversation on Twitter with #readaloud and by following us on @litworldsays.
