Read for the Record Day Oct 3rd
The Pearson Foundation invites you to take part in their largest initiative to build awareness around the critical importance of early childhood literacy – Jumpstart’s Read for the Record. Each year, readers everywhere join together on one day to read a single book to break the World Reading Record and to show their support for Early Childhood Literacy. Last year, over 2.3 million people set a new world record by reading Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad. This year, we hope to break that record by reading Otis by Loren Long on October 3.
