World Book Day celebrates the joy of reading and the pride of having books of your own. Touro’s Graduate School of Education faculty and friends are joining in the celebration on Thursday, April 7th, 2022, through a marathon read aloud from 9 am to 4 pm, and also by sharing award-winning books and resources for teachers, parents, and caregivers.
Attend a Read Aloud – Thursday, April 7, 2022
You can attend the entire day or come in and out for stories that interest you. If you are a teacher, we encourage you to bring your class. The webinar read alouds will be enriched with carefully selected web resources for teacher/parent/caregiver activities that can be used in conjunction with a shared reading of the book.
HANISH: THE STORY OF THE HARP by Nicolas Carter
Read by Jasmin Cowin, Ed.D.
Assistant Professor, TESOL
Inspired by a dream, a young boy named Hanish transforms a hunting bow into the first harp and shares his music with the world. His story, with fabulous illustrations by Arlette Vaistij, reveals how a weapon can be transformed into an instrument of peace and how magical the harp can be.
Dr. Cowin will enrich the story with her harp music.
