Wednesday (9 March) is World Read Aloud Day – and I encourage you all to read aloud with expression and enthusiasm. Read with your children. Read with your pets. Read to yourself. Read poetry. Read stories. Read facts and opinions. Read. Read. READ. There is beauty in hearing the written word spoken out loud.
Literacy is so important for our kids and reading with our children is vital, so find books that are fun and entertaining, and sit and read with your children.
On Monday I was interviewed on ABC Radio (Wide Bay) by Jodie van der Wetering in the lead up to World Read Aloud Day – about what got me writing children’s picture books, and the importance of identity in our stories.

Cuddle up with your kids and a book for World Read Aloud Day – and every other day. It will be THE BEST part of your day!
