The First Lady of Puerto Rico and Read for the Record

We've had the pleasure of working closely with the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Luce Vela, to raise awareness about the importance of literacy. Recently we visited La Fortaleza -- the old colonial fortress in San Juan -- and filmed a reading celebration that included children from all backgrounds, with many learning disabilities. The result is two public service announcements which appear in English in Spanish. At the same time, the Pearson Foundation has granted books so that children in over 1,500 classrooms across Puerto Rico can take part on October 8.

Watch the First Lady (Broadcast in Spanish) here:
