Boo! I had typed something, but it disappeared…Let’s try it again.
Okay, so the stuff below that’s italicized is the sample blog post from the website. I didn’t write it. =p But we are joining in the campaign! We got Llama Llama Red Pajama for free from a special storytime at the library one year. Lakeshore Learning is also have a storytime to read this book on October 6th as well. It is also Davina‘s birthday, so head over and wish her a happy birthday next week. =)
What are you doing on October 6? How does breaking a world reading record while raising awareness about America’s achievement gap sound?
Join us as we participate in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® presented in partnership with Pearson Foundation. Its a national campaign that mobilizes adults and children to close the early education achievement gap by setting a reading world record.
This annual campaign allows Americans to demand that all children receive the quality early education they deserve. On October 6, 2011, more than 2 million voices will call for an end to America’s early education achievement gap by reading Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney – setting a world record in the process!
