James H. Boyd celebrated World Read Aloud Day on Feb. 1. Each year people around the globe participate in World Read Aloud Day and share stories to advocate for literacy as a human right.

This year at Boyd, teachers read aloud to their students throughout the day, including books “Love” by Matt de la Pena and “7 Ate 9” by Tara Lazar. Mrs. Bove and Mrs. Held’s third-grade class had the opportunity to Skype with author Tara Lazar during the day as well. After she read her book “7 Ate 9” to the class, students asked her questions about the book, about being an author and more.
