We're celebrating World Read Aloud Day with Storytime!
For 13 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, created by the non-profit LitWorld and sponsored by Scholastic, is celebrated annually in over 173 countries and is all about bringing people together through the shared connection of reading aloud in all of our communities.
We'll be meeting the challenge by having a storytime on Wednesday, February 1st at 10:30 in our Sherwood store. Stop by to hear a few fun stories! When you're done listening, be sure to check out our book section. Maybe you'll find something new to read aloud to your brother, your grandma or even your cat!
If you can't make it to our storytime, check out Storyvoice. They are holding a WRAD-a-thon (WRAD=World Read Aloud Day). Tune in to hear favorite authors like Mac Barnett, Brian Selznick and Dav Pilkey read LIVE! Find out more here.
