Celebrate World Read Aloud Day

Tomorrow is worth celebrating!  February 1 has been designated as World Read Aloud Day.

Research shows that reading aloud to children peaks at age five, then falls dramatically once a child learns to read independently.  But the message of tomorrow is “Don’t stop now!”

Frequent reading-aloud puts a child on the path to becoming a lifelong (and frequent) reader.  Plus, listening to a parent read to them is one of the most cherished memories for many adults, perhaps even you!

You don’t need to wait until tomorrow to read aloud to a child.
