Be Part of the Story

It is not too late to join in the excitement of World Read Aloud Day on March 6. Make plans to read aloud with your child's class or at a local bookstore or library. Or read to a group of children at home. Check out this page for ideas for how you can participate.

Please take moment to see this video, which shows scenes from last year's celebration of World Read Aloud Day.

Words change worlds. Be part of the story.

What I think . . .

There are all kinds of readers. Some—like my daughter and me—are never without a book to read for pleasure. Others—like my son—are careful, analytical, and curious readers who read primarily to seek information from the page.

No matter what kind of reader your child becomes, you can help him or her get started. After all, you are your child’s first teacher. And, best of all, you can have some fun in the process.

Please feel free to share your own ideas. Tell me about ways you've enjoyed reading with your child.
