1st February is World Read Aloud Day www.litworld.org/wrad/

The day is a reminder that reading aloud to children every day puts them almost a year ahead of children for whom this is not their experience.

It is also a reminder that there are 750 million adults around the world , two thirds of whom are women,  without basic skills in reading and writing.

Our RSVP School volunteers help children acquire literacy as a basic human right.

Day #7 of our #exhibition celebrating the #skills and interests of #olderpeople living in #carehomes. Sybil is a #ballet dancer with a #passion for #music and today she reminds us to take a break and a moment to ourselves with our favourite tune.
