Read for the Record

Posted on: August 24, 2006

Today is the day when we’re all supposed to Read for the Record!

  • Tens of thousands of adults and young children will read The Little Engine That Could together in their homes, libraries, parent groups, preschool centers and major public venues on August 24 to show support for early learning, engage in the very practice that helps young children thrive, and set a world record.
  • A special edition of The Little Engine That Could, custom published by Penguin and generously printed gratis by Pearson, will celebrate Jumpstart’s Read for the Record campaign and share with you important tips for making the most of reading time with young children. The custom limited edition of The Little Engine That Could is available exclusively at Starbucks from August 1 – 28.

Brian and Karen are in San Antonio, where she will be the Jumpstart representative at an event with over 600 children (and simulcast to the schools with 30,000 more children) reading The Little Engine That Could together with state representatives, local celebrities, and much to Brian’s liking, the Coyote mascot from the Spurs.
