Guest readers help commemorate Otisville’s ‘World Read Aloud Day’ festivities

Feb. 1 was “World Read Aloud Day,” a day which calls attention to the importance of sharing stories by challenging participants to grab a book, find an audience and read-aloud.

Otisville Elementary students celebrated with special guest readers in the library and a great day of reading was had by all!

Thank you to:

  • Assistant Principal Nikachi Griffin, who read “How Full is your Bucket?” and “After the Fall.”
  • School Counselor Shanon Follansbee, who read “My Very Favorite Book in the Whole Wide World.”
  • School Social Worker Danielle Ulbrich, who read “Enemy Pie.”
  • Superintendent Brian Monahan, who read “Turtle and Tortoise are Not Friends.”
  • Principal Julia Downey, who read “Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon.”

This global effort was created by the non-profit organization LitWorld and is sponsored by Scholastic. It’s celebrated annually in over 170 countries and is all about bringing people together through the shared connection of reading aloud in all of our communities.
