Read for the Record 2011

Hooray for Read for the Record! It's my second year to participate in helping to bring attention to the importance of early literacy eduction for children. The ultimate goal is the break the world record for reading the same book in one day to as many children as possible all over the world.
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).



My next stop was Brooke's 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.
