NBC’s TODAY Show Launches Read for the Record
Another big day!
This week, with the help of NBC’s Savannah Guthrie and Singer Ashanti, We Give Books and Jumpstart launched the 2012 Read for the Record on the TODAY Show.
Everyone is encouraged to participate in Jumpstart’s 2012 Read for the Record on October 4th by reading the children’s book Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad, by David Soman and Jacky Davis.
Read for the Record is the one day of the year when millions of individuals come together to celebrate literacy and support Jumpstart in its efforts to promote early childhood education. In 2012, 2.2 million people participated in Read for the Record and this year we hope to break that record.
Thanks to We Give Books, Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad can be read for free on-line at wegivebooks.org. Help us break the record by pledging to read Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad on October 4th!
