Chapters Books & Gifts will take part in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® on October 6, 2011—the official date of the nation-wide campaign to set a new world record for the largest shared reading experience on a single day.
Chapters will take part by hosting a “Read-a-Rama with Llama Llama” event on October 6, 2011, from 9 a.m.- 7 p.m. Adults are invited to bring a child(ren) to Chapters and read this year’s featured title, Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney, together. The first 25 families to participate will receive a FREE copy of Llama Llama Red Pajama courtesy of Chapters, St. John Child Development Center, and the Seward Community Read to Me Program. All participants will receive a certificate of participation, fun activities to accompany the reading, and a photo of themselves.
In partnership with Jumpstart and the Pearson Foundation, Chapters supports early education and literacy development and encourages the entire community to participate in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record on October 6, 2011. Again this year, the day-long campaign will be kicked off on NBC’s TODAY show and will be followed by large and small reading events organized by individuals, schools, libraries, government organizations and local businesses nationwide.
