Today the 20 th of November the reading day takes place nationwide in Germany under the motto ‘Europe and the world’.

The idea of this action day has been inspiring more and more people since 2004, most recently 700.000.

The idea behind it is quite simple:Just take time to read aloud.

Everyone who enjoys reading picks up a book and reads  it to others. No matter who, no matter where. In the children’s room, in front of the fireplace or in corona-free times in schools, in libraries or in public places in Germany.

Well-known people support this ‘Vorlese Festival‘. This year online!

Thomas Mueller from the FC Bayern and Muschda Sherzada will read out loud amongst others. You can find further information here:

Reading out loud is international. Take your time and join !
