Reading plays an important part in literacy and to help promote its importance, Litworld has created World Read Aloud Day.
Staples is launching the #ReadAndReflect campaign to bring further awareness, particularly to parents around the world, to the importance of reading aloud. Their goal is to promote literacy by encouraging parents to read out loud to their children (or have their children read out loud to them!) and promote comprehension through drawing something that represents their reaction and/or feelings of the story. Staples is pretty kind enough to send some awesome WRAD-kits for my daughter to use.
