Sign up to Read for the Record! This year featuring a little llama in red pajamas

Pledge to read to kids and support early childhood education!

Once again, Jumpstart is organizing a “Read for the Record” event, which asks adults to pledge to read to the children in their life on October 6, 2011. Whether you read to your own children or someone else’s (as I will do, reading to my preschool classes), we can together demonstrate that reading aloud to children is powerful and important! By pledging to read, you’re showing the world that you believe that early childhood education matters!

This year, we’re pledging to read Anna Dewdney’s Llama Llama Red Pajama which is a storytime staple around here. In fact, I was already planning to use my bedtime stories theme in early October, which of COURSE little llama is a part of. Red Pajama is a delightful rhyming story which accurately reflects a child’s bedtime anxieties. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy getting to read the words “llama drama?”

Join me and take the pledge to read on Oct. 6!

    HI. I’m doing Read for the Record too. It will be a preschool story and craft. We are doing a pajama paper doll craft. Good luck to you!

    Well, that’s just silly. Maybe you should start up a UK-equivalent!

    Would do this, but no non-USA entrants allowed to register. May do it informally though!
