Help spread the word: Everyone has a right to read on World Read Aloud Day

World Read Aloud Day is an opportunity to celebrate reading and storytelling
with entire communities. World Read Aloud Day also highlights the need for
libraries and community centres as crucial spaces to discover, explore and
foster literacy.
I blogged about this event @ The Right to Read and Write
The post includes information about the global literacy situation and videos of authors
 reading their stories on YouTube for World Read Aloud Day 2014.

Imagine a world where everyone can read... 
On World Read Aloud Day, celebrate by reading aloud or 
taking action on behalf of the 793 million people who cannot read
.
How did this event start? who had the bright idea? Read this inspiring article:

I made this World Read Aloud sticker sheet to give out to the children.
