I was delighted when the local newspaper asked to come speak to the class and I about the Global Read Aloud. They loved the story so much that today it ran on the front page. Thank you so much to every person who believes in this project, who shares this project, and who has their students do it. It started with a crazy idea and is now connecting more than 138,000 students for 6 weeks. We are indeed connecting the world one book at a time.
