Every year, World Read Aloud Day calls global attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories. Today is that day!

World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words and creates a community of readers taking action to show the world that the right to literacy belongs to all people. World Read Aloud Day is celebrated by millions of people in more than 100 countries thanks to people who participate and spread the word across the globe!

Sparky has some great storybook apps that would be great to use while celebrating this important day.

“Rescue Dogs, Firefighting Heroes and Science Facts” includes 4 stories and a poem about fire safety. “The Case of the Missing Smoke Alarms” is a fun story where Sparky and his friends set out to solve a mystery. “Sparky’s Birthday Surprise” also teaches kids about fire safety with stories, games and a sing-a-long! Check all three out and read aloud to someone today on World Read Aloud Day.
