Imagine a world where everyone can read. Pam Allyn believes in it and formed the non-profit LitWorld to promote global literacy. Today it’s estimated over 793 million people remain illiterate. LitWorld’s mission is to use the power of story to cultivate literacy skills in the world’s most vulnerable children through Education, Advocacy and Innovation.
Tomorrow we can all celebrate the great cause on World Read Aloud Day! There are many ways to get involved! Make sure you join the support here, look for local events or at least read aloud to a child. You can also participate on Twitter with #readaloud.
I wish I was going to be in NYC at my favorite bookstore Books of Wonder for the BIG event including Clifford the Big Red Dog! But I’ll have to settle for Twitter and the live Facebook chat from The Scholastic Store. >^..^<
