Read for the Record 2011
I was so happy to have the opportunity to read Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney to the children in the classrooms of both Maddie and Brooke.
My first stop was Maddie's Dual Language first grade classroom. I read the book in English, and Maddie's teacher, Ms. Garcia, read it to the students in Spanish (Llama Llama Rojo Pijama). Each student in her class received a donated book from wegivebooks.org (a non-profit division of Pearson Education).
Pre-Kinder classroom at her child care center. After reading to Brooke's class, I read to about 50 other children. It's an incredibly rewarding experience, and anyone can do it. Just sign up each year, read to one kid to hundreds, and document the amount of children to see if the record will be broken again.
