National Read Aloud Day

AZPM staff visited the Climbing Tree Community School to read a selection of PBS Books to the Pre-K students.

Sharing a story is a powerful experience, for reader and listener alike. It creates a magical bond where imagination can soar. It also builds crucial literacy skills in the most engaging way possible.

On February 7, 2024, the power of reading aloud is celebrated with World Read Aloud Day. World Read Aloud Day was founded in 2010 by the nonprofit organization LitWorld to position literacy as a foundational human right. And, so far, the day has become a real page-turner, celebrated by millions of readers and listeners in over 170 countries!

Locally, AZPM participated in Read Aloud Day by visiting the pre-K class at the Climbing Tree Community School at Blenman Elementary.
