Who’s Participating in ‘World Day for Reading Aloud’? اليوم العالمي للقراءة الجهرية في…

March 9 is apparently the “International Day for Reading Aloud.” I haven’t seen events in most Arabic-reading countries, but I did see that Jordan’s Rabeea Alnasser,  founder of the House of Tales and Music, is Jordan’s “World Read-aloud Day Ambassador.”

Alnasser is helping organize two events in Amman: a contest and a reading of “روزي في بيت الأشباح.” The events require an invitation or registration, so check out the details here.

After all: Even if your children are solid independent readers, reading aloud is an important part of the literacy experience. It can also increase family togetherness; a recent study indicated that adult couples who read aloud together are more likely to stay happily together.

I’m on the lookout for other World Read-aloud Day events….
