#WorldReadAloudDay   #WRADChallenge

Sign up to receive free resources, activities, and information about World Read Aloud Day, including the WRAD VirtualKit.

For 12 years, World Read Aloud Day has called attention to the importance of sharing stories by challenging participants to grab a book, find an audience, and read-aloud! The global effort is now celebrated in over 173 countries and counting. World Read Aloud Day is all about bringing people together through stories and that will be more important than ever this year when the shared experience and connection of reading aloud is so needed in all of our communities. New resources to make World Read Aloud Day a joyous day for students, teachers, and families will be unveiled at the end of the year.
