Celebrating World Read Aloud Day in Barbados
| Mar 08, 2011
The Barbados Association of Reading (BAR) supports World Read Aloud Day on March 9, 2011, reports Cheryl Williams, and is encouraging its members to celebrate by promoting reading activities in the school and at home. World Read Aloud Day shines a spotlight on the estimated 774 million people around the world who cannot read.
World Read Aloud Day is an initiative of LitWorld, a literacy organization that trains teachers and community leaders in strategies to help children to read.
