Literacy: an imperative we must embrace in 2021

South African children, along with their global counterparts in 66 countries, will once again immerse themselves in a world of new words, interesting characters and gripping plots on World Read Aloud Day.

Presented by global literacy non-profit, LitWorld and sponsored by Scholastic, the annual literacy celebration advocates for greater access to literacy through diverse stories, as well as the power of reading aloud.
