Read for the Record is a global campaign that generates public support for high quality early learning and highlights the importance of building children's vocabulary and love for reading.
On October 27, 2016 children and adults worldwide will gather to learn, laugh and read at this story time event. This year's campaign book, The Bear Ate Your Sandwich, written by Julia Sarcone-Roach, is a delicious tale of a bear lost in the city who happens upon an unattended sandwich in the park.
Community Celebrity Readers are available to read the story at your location.
