What is World Read Aloud Day?

World Read Aloud Day is an annual event that takes place on the first Wednesday of February.
It is a global celebration of the power of reading aloud and sharing stories.
The goal of World Read Aloud Day is to promote literacy and the love of reading by encouraging people of all ages to pick up a book and read aloud to someone else, whether it be a child, a friend, a colleague, or a member of their community.
World Read Aloud Day was founded in 2010 by the nonprofit organization LitWorld (LitWorld) and is celebrated in countries around the world.
The event is meant to highlight the importance of literacy and the role that reading aloud plays in promoting literacy and fostering a love of reading in children and adults alike.
