World Read Aloud Day on March 9th

     World Read Aloud Day is on March 9th this year! This day is sponsored by Lit World, which is a non-profit organization whose mission "is to cultivate literacy leaders worldwide through transformational literacy experiences that build connection, understanding, resilience and strength."  For our primary grades, this is certainly a holiday that you celebrate with your children on a daily basis! :) To learn more about this, you can check out Lit World's website and Facebook page.  

     Lit World and Lit Life's executive director is Pam Allyn, who has written numerous professional books. Her newest book that will be coming out this spring from Scholastic is Pam Allyn's Best Books for Boys. Allyn's book What To Read When (Avery, 2009) can be previewed through Google Books and it also has a companion website. You can check out Pam Allyn's other resources from Scholastic Professional Books here at this link.
