This event is organised by LitWorld and, in their words, “is about taking action to show the world that the right to read and write belongs to all people." This organisation advocates for every child’s right to literacy, safe education, and access to books and technology. The aim of World Read Aloud Day is to encourage everyone to participate in an international celebration; to motivate children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words and stories.
There are, however, 774 million people who cannot appreciate the world of difference that being able to read makes possible. If knowledge is power then knowledge combined with imagination is unstoppable.
HAPPY WORLD READ ALOUD DAY!
