The Snowy Day was front and center for World Read-Aloud Day, on March 7. In New York City, Miss USA Alyssa Campanella, and children’s author Katherine Paterson (with an appearance by Clifford the Big Red Dog) gave readings to a rapt audience, hosted by the literacy organization LitWorld. On the West Coast, LeVar Burton read The Snowy Day the Keats classic for Google+. Both events were live-streamed around the world. And later, how many parents read The Snowy Day as a bedtime story because their childhood favorite was also their children’s?
