Happy World Read Aloud Day!

On February 3rd we celebrated World Read Aloud Day with Scholastic and LitWorld. It was AMAZING. Many purchased On My Way: Howie and the Light for WRAD. All proceeds will go towards funding our grants.

Also, it’s National Children’s Authors and Illustrators Week 📣

💫reinforcing positive messages and memories that last a lifetime through the art of storytelling💫

You can celebrate this week by discovering a new book or author. 📌Reading as a family is so much fun. I have fond memories of reading with my mom and dad as a child. Here’s to turning off the TV and reading more.

This month we celebrate National African American Read-in (an initiative established by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English which focuses on African American authors and books and has reached 6 million people). I am rereading and re-falling-in-love with Ann Petry’s The Street this week to kick off the Read-in. 📌
