It is awesome to see the power the Internet has in bringing business organizations, individuals, libraries, schools and institutions together to celebrate World Real Aloud Day.  Founded by Litworld, a  501C3 nonprofit organization to promote sustainable literacy practices worldwide, World Read Aloud Day, #WRAD, is about taking action to advocate Global Literacy. 

As educators prepare for World Read Aloud Day across the globe, bloging, tweeting, and posting to Facebook and YouTube we have captured some of these moments.  Check out the storify post above.

March 7th we will continue to update our findings throughout the web from educators, the "ed.net", as they  post their activities.  We will also share a video of our own that was prepared by Follett in celebration and support of World Read Aloud Day.
