Feb 1 - World Read Aloud Day

Every year, on the first Wednesday of February, people around the world celebrate World Read Aloud Day. The day was started in 2010 by LitWorld, a non-profit organization that promotes literacy and education for children worldwide. The goal of World Read Aloud Day is to encourage people of all ages to read aloud to others. It is also a day to celebrate the power of words and the joy that comes from shared reading experiences. There are many ways to participate in World Read Aloud Day, including reading aloud to a child, reading aloud in a public place, or sharing a favorite book
