Skyping & Celebrating! World Read Aloud Day is March 9th

Where will you be on World Read Aloud Day?  Reading to someone, I hope!  If you want me to read to you or your students, just click here to check out my World Read Aloud Day celebration online; I’m sharing video read-alouds of three of my books (two that aren’t even out yet!)

During lunchtime on World Read Aloud Day, I’ll be sharing a Skype read-aloud with teacher Karla Duff’s 6th graders in Oelwein, Iowa.  Karla (she’s @teacher6th on Twitter) contacted me to be part of a special Skype read-aloud project for her kids, and I thought it was a great idea. In case other teachers & librarians want to join her in Skyping authors into classrooms and libraries for short read-alouds of their work, here’s a list of authors who are volunteering their time to do this on March 9th!  To make arrangements, please click on the author’s website to make sure his or her books are a good match for your students. Then email the author directly to make arrangements.  Happy reading!
