On Reading Aloud on World Read Aloud Day

Today is Litworld’s World Read Aloud Day. As someone who has always read aloud to her class it is a celebration I can totally get behind. Right now, in preparation for Jack Gantos’ visit to our school in May, I’m reading aloud to my fourth grade class his Newbery winner Dead End in Norvelt. Earlier in the year I read aloud Carman Agra Deedy and Randall Wright’s The Cheshire Cheese Cat with great success so I’m delighted to see it as a finalist for the E. B. White Read Aloud Award. Here are a few favorites of the many posts I’ve done on this topic:

  1. I’ll be reading aloud to eighth graders today, and so looking forward to it (though I wish my voice had not been reduced to rubble by a bad cold). Helme Heine, Marilyn Nelson, Karhy Erskine, Mary Oliver, Ruta Sepetys, William Carlos Williams — what a great day it is. I truly love your choices and words.
