Read for the Record

Tomorrow is Read for the Record day and we are all  geared up and ready for it!  Guest readers will arrive at our school around 8:00 tomorrow and make their rounds to classroom to read this year's book, Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad.  Our county is very fortunate to be pared up with a great United Way volunteer who has hooked us up with 12 copies of this year's book for us to keep!  It's going to be a great day for setting World Records.  Are you going to join in the fun?

If you don't have a copy of the book, you can read it for free as an eBook on We Give Books (  You do have to sign up for an account to access this book, but accounts are free.   So why not join in the fun?

Update: As of January 1, 2016, the We Give Books website is no longer active.  =(
