Wherein the fourth graders have one incredibly memorable World Read Aloud Day

Wednesday was World Read Aloud Daya global literacy initiative founded by LitWorldLitWorld empowers young people to author lives of independence, hope, and joy. 
Read Aloud. 
Change the World. 
By connecting with other readers, we're helping to demonstrate the importance of reading along with bringing attention to the work of closing the global literacy gap.

On Wednesday, my fourth graders read aloud with Sophie Blackall, Dan Santat, and Laura Given, a friend, colleague, and member of the 2016 Caldecott Committee.

Here's a look at these incredible Skype visits and read aloud experiences:
