World Read Aloud Day
Back for its 13th year, World Read Aloud Day 2022 invites the world to slow down and sit down together on February 2, 20220, to read. Created by Litworld and sponsored by Scholastic, the yearly event is intended to bring people together in a common love of books and stories.
This year, virtual events to mark World Read Aloud Day begin on January 31 and will continue through February 2. The events include sing-along sessions for the kids, chats about parenting, and a presentation with Q and A from I SURVIVED series author Lauren Tarshis. For a full list of events, click here.
All readers and event participants are encouraged to share the word with the #WorldReadAloud hashtag on social media — tell us what you’re reading and what you love!
