World Read ALoud Day

Every important social issue that impacts the quality of our lives is affected by our levels of literacy Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing! Social issues include our ability to earn a livable wage to support ourselves and families, having the ability to understand and utilize health care information to stay healthy, the ability to participate fully in society to make valuable contributions, like voting and advocating for social services and governmental policies that enhance our society.

It is now celebrated in over 173 countries, annually.
