Reading for a World Record & to Support Early Literacy

We Give Books & Read for the Record

Are you familiar with We Give Books–a Pearson Foundation Initiative? If not, let me tell you a little bit about it. We Give Books has several literacy campaigns and they have several high-quality books on their website for you to read. What do you do? Select a book from their growing library and read it. Once you finish reading the book, select a literacy campaign you would like to support. A book will be donated for every book you read online. Yes, it’s as easy as that to support literacy around the world!

To learn more about We Give Books and Jumpstart’s Read for the Record (which happens today, October 6, 2011), click here: http://www.wegivebooks.org/. The book that millions around the world are pledging to read today is “Llama Llama Red Pajama” by Anna Dewdney.

Being a lover of comedy and sign language, I will also share this video of comedian, Keith Wann, reading the book in American Sign Language:
