Read for the Record is one day of the year when millions of individuals come together to celebrate literacy and to promote early childhood education. The program is an attempt to break the world record for the most people reading the same book on the same day! The national campaign is organized by Jumpstart and presented in partnership with the Pearson Foundation, whose goal is for every child to have the chance to begin school prepared.
Many local individuals and organizations were part of last year's event, developing events and activities around the book, inviting celebrity readers into your site or reading with your children and grandchildren at home. Read to Succeed Buffalo is proud to participate in this important initiative once and again and hope that you will too.
We encourage you, your family, your neighborhood, your school or your organization to take the pledge and read the children's book Otis, by Loren Long, on October 3rd.
