Every year World Read Aloud Day calls global attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories.

Read Aloud. Change the World.


This year, we are teaming up with Scholastic to coincide with Harry Potter Book Night, when fans around the world celebrate the much-loved books by J.K. Rowling.

Harry Potter is a literary hero around the world. The books represent to all of us the power of words, stories, and reading, which is why we are so thrilled to make this year’s World Read Aloud Day bigger than ever before!

Each year, 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 like you who participate and spread the word across the globe.
