Read ‘Llama Llama Red Pajama’ Tomorrow!


Each year, millions of low-income Kindergarten-age children start school academically behind the other children, and their likelihood of catching up is slim. That’s where Jumpstart’s Read for the Record program, in partnership with the Pearson Foundation, comes in.

On October 6, 2011, Jumpstart is hosting an international reading record–by having everyone read Anna Dewdney’s Llama Llama Red Pajama. Even though it’s a drop in the ocean of America’s early education achievement gap, organizers say this annual program helps.

Plus, who doesn’t love these fun picture books? Just look at the illustrations and your heart will melt.

So tomorrow, pull out that Llama Llama Red Pajama and read it to the kids, and participate in a stand against the growing gap between those kids who can read well, and those who can’t. WeGiveBooks.org has it online for free for the campaign, or you can stop in and buy your own copy.

  1. Cool idea. THe online version of the book is nice. I am going to read it to my sister today (she is having a lot of trouble reading). Thank you for letting us know about this!
