Are you ready for "Read for the Record?"
The folks at NBC's Today Show, and hopefully you, are teaming up with
JUMPSTART, a non-profit organization that focuses on literacy, in its quest to "Read for the Record."
Tens of thousands of adults and young children will read "The Little Engine That Could" together in their homes, libraries, parent groups, preschool centers and major public venues on Thursday, August 24 to show support for early learning, engage in the very practice that helps young children thrive and hopefully set the world record for the number of children reading the same book in a single day with an adult.
WITN-TV, for example, has a group of 20 students scheduled to come in and hear the book read. There are several public events planned around the East. Click here to find out more information.
