Thank you to PaperTigers Blog for posting on this virtual rally promoting literacy for girls all over the world! I stand alongside in solidarity and hope that you will too! Here’s a simple way to participate:
Stand Up. At noon your time on September 22, take ten seconds to physically stand up wherever you are (wear the Stand Up for Girls Badge!) to give recognition and awareness to the movement.
If you want to go the distance: Take a photo of yourself standing up for girls and post it on LitWorld’s Facebook wall.
I met Jen Robinson at KidLitCon 2010 which was a great thrill for me because I am a HUGE fan of her excellent blog, Jen Robinson’s Book Page. My work friend, Nat, sent me this link so I am excited to share her words of wisdom on Boys and Summer Reading.
LitWorld, an international literacy non profit, has teamed up with Be There BedTime Stories for World Read Aloud Day. To participate, you simply just read a book to anyone: a child, an adult, your dog or cat!
But if you want to join in the fun of recording your reading to share with a loved one who is NOT nearby, you can download a free book (today only!) through Be There BedTime Stories.
