Event: World Read Aloud Day


I only came across this yesterday, please remind me to add it to the calender for next year.

The Children’s Book Council present WORLD READ ALONG DAY.

I don’t know about you but I love being read to or sharing something particularly fun with the students by reading aloud. Just his week we have been reading Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes together.
