Read for the Record Today

Today is Read for the Record day.

Check out the campaign, and find out where the closest event to you is happening today.

My local Starbucks is taking part this afternoon and is offering freebies for parents and kids - whoo hoo! Literacy and caffeine, a happy combination I'll take any day.

Who knows, maybe The Story of Ferdinand will be just what it takes to get Miss E to stop asking me to read this book to her a million times a day?

I don't read it anymore, we recite it together without even looking at the pages! But, whatever keeps her interested in books and reading I'm all for it.

Hopefully you'll be able to catch a Read for the Record event today, if not, you can join in online.

Alas, living in the middle of nowhere does have it's downside. Thanks for the link though!

Brilliant! I love it that there are such events. Oh I loved the "Ferdinand the Bull" story. Go, read, enjoy! I'm quite certain I don't have an event here, but I am with you in spirit.
