As the mother of a 5 year old, 2 year old, and a baby, we are right in the thick of learning to read. I am so hoping that my children share the love of books that I have always had. We read every night, and so far, so good! It is so much fun watching them learn to read words!
So when I came across the Bug Squad, I knew this was something I wanted to share!
Have you heard about the latest We Give Books cause? This fall, join the Bug Squad to raise awareness for the importance of early childhood literacy while having fun and helping to break a world record!
Inspired by Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad, the 2012 Jumpstart’s Read for the Record book written by David Soman and Jacky Davis, We Give Books has created their own Bug Squad to give us new ways to read, give, and share reading this fall! Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is a single day of awareness on October 4, when we’ll set a new world record for the most people reading the same book on the same day. There are tons of Bug Squad resources to help your kids get excited about reading and to help you plan your own record-setting celebration.
We Give Books is a fantastic resource for parents, teachers, and anyone who loves to read children’s books. They have a free online library of over 150 outstanding children’s books available at www.wegivebooks.org, including some of our favorites, like the Llama Llama and Skippyjon Jones books, and DK science books. The best part is, your reading will directly impact the great work of non-profit organizations around the world!
So, head over to www.wegivebooks.org to Join the Bug Squad and find out more about this wonderful initiative, and start reading and giving!
