"Will You Read Me a Story?" Birmingham Public Library Joins Jumpstart's Read for the Record
Jumpstart's Read for the Record is an international campaign to bring preschool children together with valued grownups in their lives to read the same book, one the same day, in communities all over the world. In 2008 nearly 700,000 readers shared the classic children's tale Corduroy. This year's book is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.
Librarians throughout the Birmingham Public Library system will be reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar to children on October 8, helping to set a new world record. Call your local branch library to find out when they will be reading.
