4th Annual "Read for the Record"
Thursday, Oct. 7, 2010
This Thursday (Oct. 7, 2010), THINK Together students will join with Jumpstart, The Pearson Foundation and several million fellow students across the globe to "Read for the Record." This international literacy campaign brings children together with valued grownups in their lives who will all read the same book, on the same day, in communities all over the world. This year participants will be reading Ezra Jack Keats’ book The Snowy Day (UN Dia De Nieve).
In 2009, more than 2 million students, including 6,000 from THINK Together, participated in “Read for the Record.” That was up from the 700,000 children who participated in 2009. "Read for the Record" started in 2006.
It’s still not too late to participate. Take the Pledge to Read now and help us take part in setting a new World Record. You can also sign-up for other parent and family resources when you register.
