World Read Aloud Day is an awareness day advocating for literacy as a right that belongs to all people, celebrated around the world annually on the first Wednesday in March.
World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words, especially those words that are shared from one person to another.
By raising our voices together on this day, we show the world’s children that we support their future: that they have the right to read, to write, and to share their words to change the world. (http://worldreadaloudday.org/)
