2023 World Read Aloud Day
Encouraging Young Readers & Writers Everywhere
LitWorld’s mission is to strengthen kids and communities through the power of stories. LitWorld works with a broad coalition of national and international partners to ensure that young people worldwide can experience the joy and transformation of reading, writing, and storytelling.
Stories are humankind's greatest resource, and these stories are the key to creating social change. When kids have access to spaces where they are free to explore their identities, discover their strengths, and express their dreams, they become empowered to create lasting change in their lives, in their communities, and beyond.
It is Outskirts Press’s privilege to sponsor and support LitWorld’s mission.
Every February, World Read Aloud Day highlights the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories. Participants are encouraged to select a book, find a friend, and read aloud. The day also encourages parents to read aloud to their children.
Join millions around the globe to celebrate the power of reading aloud with World Read Aloud Day, held annually on the first Wednesday of February!
You can check out LitWorld's World Read Aloud Day Activity Hub for free resources to help you celebrate reading aloud all year long.
