Scholastic are running “World Read Aloud Day” (WRAD) on February 5, 2020 to celebrate reading aloud around the world.
The event, which has been running for 11 years, emphasises “the importance of sharing stories” by challenging participants to find a creative place and method of reading a book out loud to an audience. Scholastic encourages students to get involved in running an event in their own school community.
