Come to Walmart in Alamosa on Thursday, October 8, from 3:30-6:30 p.m.theveryhungrycaterpillarl and be a part of breaking a record!

Jumpstart for Young Children is sponsoring Read for the Record, the one day world-wide reading of Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Last year 700,000 children heard Corduroy. This year the goal is for 1 million children to all hear The Very Hungry Caterpillar on one day.

I’ll be at Walmart (one of the sponsors for Read for the Record) in Alamosa from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. reading to all children who want to be a part of the record breaking.

I’ll also have information on early literacy and Southern Peaks’ library services for adults.

Can’t make it to Walmart that day? You can still go to Jumpstart’s website and pledge to read to a child that day.  Every child counts–whether for the record breaking on October 8, or more especially, for the life and blessing they are to us all. Let’s give them the best.

Change a life; read to a child!
