World Read Aloud Day 2014: The countdown is on

Written by Lisa Spurgin, 21st February 2014

There's less than two weeks to go until World Read Aloud Day, the worldwide celebration of reading aloud headed by LitWorld. The Reader Organisation is proud to be taking part as a WRADvocate Partner of World Read Aloud Day 2014, and we're counting down to the big day by showcasing a selection of people who love to read aloud.

You can be a part of our World Read Aloud Day celebrations by filming yourself reading something you love aloud and sending it to us to show the world your passion for reading. It's easy to do - just make a recording (between 2 and 25 minutes long), save it as a .wav file, include your details and a photo of yourself and send it to us by contacting bethpochin@thereader.org.uk. We'll add you to our online reading hall of fame as we help Liverpool Learning Partnership create a City of Readers.

From today until World Read Aloud Day, we're getting into the read aloud spirit by sharing some of the brilliant read aloud videos we've already gathered online. The first we're sharing here on The Reader Online, but for the rest you'll need to check our Twitter page to get the full reading aloud countdown.
