Jumpstart has started a “Read for the Record” campaign to bring attention to the importance of early education. By encouraging children and adults to read Corduroy on the same day in schools, libraries, stores, hotels, playgrounds, offices, and homeschools, Jumpstart hopes to break a world record and to make early education a national priority.
1.) Visit Read for the Record’s website and register.
Hanna Anderson (clothing retailer) will receive $1 for every classroom/group that registers.
2.) Find an event in your area to join or to host your own event.
I’m hosting a Corduroy Read for the Record event in my area.
My plan is that we will of course read the book and make a little lapbook or craft based on the book.
