Message from Alise--"Read for the Record Day"
Happy Thursday, Tutoring Family!
One of my colleagues forwarded me information about today, October 4th.
It is actually "Read for the Record Day" so please make sure that you go and read one of the free books available at the website below.
Check out the information from Pearson Education's President--Mark Nieker!
Don’t forget…Today is Read for the Record Day!
Read Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad to a Child
We Give Books Helps Children Read - Give and Share Books by Supporting Jumpstart’s Read for the Record
Just a reminder. We hope you are planning to Read for the Record wherever you are today. Even if you haven’t signed up for your local event, We Give Books’ newly redesigned website makes it even easier to read, while you give and share children’s books online.
Anyone with access to the Internet can visit the site - www.wegivebooks.org/readfortherecord to read one of the free books available in our digital library; for each book read online, We Give Books donates a print book to a leading literacy group.
By “joining the Bug Squad,” readers unlock a collection of children’s books for iPads and other mobile devices – including Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad by David Soman and Jacky Davis, this year’s official Read for the Record Campaign book.
We Give Books’ digital library is provided by Penguin in an effort to spread the word about the important role of reading in shaping a lifetime of learning. Since We Give Books launched in 2010, the Pearson Foundation and Penguin have donated more than a million books, with a goal of donating a million more by the end of this school year.
Have fun today!
Mark Nieker, President
