2. Challenge someone to accept the #21DayReadAloud Challenge and join the fun.

3. Continue reading aloud for at least 15 minutes for 21 days and keep using the tags so we can share and celebrate your success while helping us spread the importance of reading aloud.

4. Track your progress with the 21-Day Tracker and use tips from our 21-Day Content Calendar.

Reading aloud already? Then you’re doing it “right”

– but here are some helpful tips to keep you going...



  • Get excited, this is going to be fun!
  • Read with expression. Make silly sounds, use funny voices.
  • Point to the pictures and talk about them.
  • Let your child pick the book, turn the pages or anything to help engage them.
  • Don't worry if your child won't sit still. Squirmy worms are still listening!
  • Make it a habit.
