World Read Aloud Day: March 7, 2012

Take Action for Global Literacy, Celebrate the Power of Words, Change the


Worldwide at least 793 million people remain illiterate.

Imagine a world where everyone can read...

World Read Aloud Day is about taking action to show the world that the right to read and write belongs to all people.

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, and creates a community of readers advocating for every

child’s right to a safe education and access to books and technology.

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.
