March 5th, 2014 is World Read Aloud Day, a global event promoted by LitWorld to match up students and authors for a great big read-aloud. Last year a million people participated in 65 countries worldwide!
I had a total blast visiting classes via Skype and introducing Anton & Cecil to some new friends. We asked questions and laughed about the answers, and I made so many new friends, even as far away as New Zealand, where they sang a beautiful folk song for me. Incredibly fun.
