International Literacy Day and Preschoolers

Posted on 08-25-2017

Curling up with a favorite book often serves as a go-to when it comes to a bedtime routine with your preschooler, but for so many children and parents around the world, reading a good book together is not an option. More than 700 million adults cannot read or write and around 100 million children lack access to a quality education. Learning about literacy with your preschooler can help to highlight the importance of this worldwide need!

International Literacy Day

Established by UNESCO in 1965 and celebrated in several countries around the world on September 8, International Literacy Day draws attention to the importance of global literacy and accessible education, regardless of a person's age. The commemorative holiday is often celebrated with events at local libraries and area schools, as well as by regional and national organizations.

Literacy Activities with Your Preschooler

You can celebrate International Literacy Day with your preschooler by participating in literacy activities together.

~Pay a visit to your local library or take a walk around the neighborhood to a Little Free Library. Pick out a few books that you can read together and then talk about the power of literacy to bring imaginative worlds alive!

~Spend time with Grandma and Grandpa, or perhaps arrange a visit to a local nursing home, and take time to read aloud from a favorite book. Your little one will be excited for the opportunity to share a beloved story, and the older person will be blessed by the time too!

~Donate to a local charity that supports global literacy or education, and talk with your preschooler about how your donation makes it possible for children in other parts of the world to go to school and to learn. You can imagine together what a school day might be like for these children!
