Read Aloud to a Child Week 2018

Each year towards the end of October Read to Them celebrates Read Aloud to a Child Week. This weeklong event recognizes the incredible benefit that comes from reading aloud.


This year the theme is beyond our borders. We have curated a list of picture and chapter books that are set in countries other than our own. These titles are just suggestions to get you started, all you have to do to participate is read aloud. Any book will do!

You can get involved as an individual, family, community, classroom, school, or district. If you are an educator or would like to share this event with an educator, we have materials available on our website.

The above Beyond our Borders titles are just a few on our list, you can access a list of many, many more here. Please consider sharing your photos with us, you can find us on Twitter and Instagram @readtothem or on Facebook. You can use the hashtags #RAW2018 and #BeyondourBorders to connect!

Some of our current RTT books fit the theme of beyond our borders, including I am Malala, Elephant Run, and The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. Click on each to learn more.

Can you think of any other titles that take place beyond our borders? Let us know on our social media sites!
