World Read Aloud Day 2018

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


Students at Steward School were very fortunate to visit with authors to help celebrate World Read Aloud Day. 
Talk about the author visit with your child—it’s a great way to encourage reading and writing in the classroom and at home.

Grade 1 students had a lovely skype visit with SueFliess. Sue is the author of over 20 books for children. She read her new book to us called MARY HAD A LITTLE LAB, and talked to us about being an author. We got to ask her questions too! The kids really enjoyed the visit and we hope to have more interactions like that in the future. If you’d like to read more about Sue and see her other books, please visit

Grade 2 students listened to Kathy Erskine read her book Mama Africa the story of Miriam Makeba, South African civil rights activist and singer, published in 2017.

Grade 3 were enthralled with Lauren Magaziner as she shared a few pages from her new book Wizard Match. She shared her love of the writing process. She inspired us to think of our own 10 second Super Power.

Grade K loved listening to Michelle Edwards shared her book A Hat for Mrs. Goldman. We got to see her own lovely knitted hat and discussed her love of making pom poms. "They make everything look better."
