For 12 years, World Read Aloud Day has called attention to the importance of sharing stories by challenging participants to grab a book, find an audience, and read-aloud! The global effort is now celebrated in over 173 countries and counting. World Read Aloud Day, created by the nonprofit organization, LitWorld, brings people together through stories. That will be more important than ever this year when the shared experience and connection of reading aloud is so needed in all of our communities.
Reading aloud has many benefits for you and your family! People find an emotional escape in stories, especially when they are read aloud. By reading to your child for a few minutes every day, they are more likely to regulate their own emotions and learn how to better express themselves. Children who spend time reading aloud are more likely to understand different people and cultures, have empathy, and deepen their imagination skills.
