This year, IRA and NASA have partnered to promote the theme "Lift Off to Literacy," which inspires students to build an out-of-this-world literacy habit. Check out the Activity Kit, too.
Join the global celebration, and be sure to let the International Reading Association know how you celebrate. Share pictures and videos to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (using the official hashtag #ILD14), or send them to ILD@reading.org.
Ask your child how International Literacy Day was celebrated in his/her classroom today!
