It’s hard to believe that the 2014 Global Read Aloud is over but today I did the final official event with the incredible Q&A with Jenni Holm. If you are not done, no worries, (I’m not!), but if you are – congratulations!
It’s hard to express just what your participation means to me. Every year I wonder if this is the year that people realize that I still don’t know completely what I am doing with this project, every year I think this is the year that people will be too busy or just not interested. And yet, every year it has grown. We started with 600 kids the first year, 2010, and this year I closed sign up at 308,000 kids. The growth of this project is all because of you! This next year will be one of more growth where I hopefully secure sponsors to help me trademark the name and do other essential things to make it even easier and better for everyone to connect and participate, wish me luck
I leave with you with the last few updates, I am off to read more incredible books, after all 2015 is just around the corner when we kick off October 5th!

And finally, please reach out with what I can do to make this easier/better/or whatever else you feel like telling me. This is not MY project, this is OUR project. Our kids connecting is what makes it incredible, so thank you for allowing me to be connected to you and your kids.
Please keep emailing me and more importantly, please keep the connections going – this is what makes the project last.
All my very best and with a huge big thank you.

Thank you so much for all you have done, Pernille. It truly is a work of heart. Thank you for sharing your love of reading with children and teachers all over the world. The students and I have gained so much from this experience and have made connections that I hope will continue for a long time. Thank you again for all you've done to make this such a great experience!
