Today is Read for the Record Day!

Today, millions of people all over the world will read “Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad”, by David Soman, as part of Read for the Record. Our friends at Jumpstart hold this event every year, bringing together parents, teachers, kids, volunteers, celebrities, political leaders and everyone else under the sun to call for an end to the achievement gap that affects kids from low-income neighborhoods.

First Book loves “Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad”, and we’re excited to be able to offer it to schools and programs in our network.

In 2011, 2.2 million people participated in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record. We want to break the record this year!

We hope you enjoy this fun and exciting day. Get to reading!
