Happy World Read Aloud Day!

We’ve been talking a lot lately about reading aloud, and today is no exception! 02/01/2019 is #WorldReadAloudDay, and what a perfect time to celebrate! The day was founded by LitWorld, and celebrates literacy as a basic human right–the belief that “everyone in the world should get to read and write”–and is also sponsored by Scholastic.

There are so many fantastic resources available to help your family or school celebrate reading aloud EVERY day, but here are just a few that we rounded up:
