As the Reading is for Everyone site states,
Giving kids reading choices helps build a foundation for a lifetime of reading. Whether it’s printed, digital, audio, or visual, kids need options and resources to learn in the way that is right for them. They need to be immersed in stories and facts about the world around them and develop the critical thinking skills to make sense of it all. They need to see themselves in those stories to feel connected and to grow and learn.
Join us in celebrating and advocating for the importance of reading. Let’s work together to make sure every child feels the limitless power of reading and proudly recognizes themselves as a reader.
After all, #ReadingIsForEveryone.

You will find it in the Flipgrid Disco Library here and can add it to use with your community too.
As you get ready for this special week around reading, I hope you visit the Reading is for Everyone site to find resources like this fantastic poster focused around the importance of reading aloud. I will be sharing this with families and teachers through emails and social media.
