Get Ready to Read for the Record

OtisIt’s that time again–Read for the Record is only a couple weeks away on October 3.  If you’re new to this, the idea is to bring together millions of people who support children’s literacy and education with a day of everyone reading the same book to or with a child.  This year the book is Loren Long’s sweet and gorgeously illustrated picture book, Otis,about little tractor with a big heart and a lot of determination.

In 2012 2.3 million people(!) participated in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record day, a number that has grown considerably every year since the event started in 2006, reading The Little Engine that Could.
