Eye Spy ~ A Fabulous Idea And A Chance To Win

As a mom, I hear ALL the time from MANY different outlets how important it is to read to my little ones. Of course, I'm all for it and love seeing the fruits of that time spent when I hear their thoughts and questions during conversations.

I received an email about a wonderful program called Jumpstart's Read For The Record and I'll post their information for you below. Let's all pledge to take the time to read to our little ones and let one of us win a fabulous prize. :)

{Psst. If you don't own Llama Llama Red Pajama, visit your local library or book store and read it there.}

Llama Llama Red Pajama Reading Party at Gymboree for Jumpstart’s Read for the Record October 6th
Pledge to Read Today!

Looking for something fun, free and educational to do with your child?

Pledge with them to join Jumpstart’s Read for the Record, a day when millions of families and celebrities read to promote early education, and come to your local Gymboree Play & Music for a free “red pajama reading party” on October 6th. In honor of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record day, Gymboree students at every location will read this year’s book, Llama Llama Red Pajama, by Anna Dewdney and participate in themed activities. Getting involved is simple. Pledge today to read and take advantage of your first free Gymboree class on October 6th, for a celebration of reading and learning.

For the past three years, Gymboree and Jumpstart have worked together on this event in the company of celebrities like Justin Bieber, Nelly Furtado and Patti LaBelle, and families around the world, to raise awareness for the importance of reading early and often. Most parents don’t know reading to young children lays an essential foundation for literacy that’s needed before they ever set foot in a classroom. The reality is, 1 in 3 children in the U.S. begin kindergarten behind, and most will never catch up. The millions of children in the U.S. living in poverty are even more likely to fall into this statistic, as many grow up in homes without a single book.

By pledging to be part of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record, you can be part of a solution. Reading with your child on this dayhelps prepare them to be successful in school and in life and also helps Jumpstart provide educational skills and resources to thousands of low-income children.

So pledge today, at and come out for the festivities at your local Gymboree on October 6th. Jumpstart has extended their giveaway entry deadline, so those who pledge before September 30th have a chance to win a $77 gift card to 77Kids by American Eagle. Thanks for doing your part! Sit down to read and stand up for children.

**For sharing this with you, I received a complimentary month membership at Gymboree from the PR firm who contacted me. My thoughts and words are my own and I did take the pledge to read this book to my kids on Oct. 6th. I hope you'll do the same!**
