Read every day. Lead a better life.

Read every day is a global literacy campaign, a superb initiative by Scholastic to promote the pleasure of reading amongst young people.

The campaign includes a dozen  interviews with children’s book illustrators plus read-aloud videos by themselves.

Suggested activities introduce the artists through their work, elicit questions, discussions and art prompts, and give children an opportunity to listen to real authors talking about the creative process.

Read every day, Lead a better life was launched in 2013, and we can still have access to its contents  and take advantage of them as EFL teachers or merely as loving parents.

Remember there is a good reason to dive into this project and make it yours: our children.
