On October 21, 2014, people across the country will unite to read the children’s book Bunny Cakes, a comical story of sibling bonding and birthday shenanigans, by bestselling author and illustrator Rosemary Wells. Join a national movement to set a new record for reading the same book on the same day!
ABOUT THE NATIONAL EVENT: Jumpstart is a national organization that works toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. Jumpstart’s premiere national campaign, Read for the Record, mobilizes millions of children and adults to celebrate literacy by participating in the largest shared reading experience.
In 2006, Jumpstart launched the first Read for the Record campaign with the classic story The Little Engine that Could. Jumpstart began the morning of that campaign day on NBC's TODAY Show, which has become a proud tradition. Jumpstart’s supporters helped set a new record for reading the same book on the same day, and in the process, created a national forum for concerned citizens to voice their support of early education.
ABOUT THE BOOK: It's Grandma's birthday, and Max wants to make her an icky, worm-infested cake. But Ruby says, "No, Max. We are going to make Grandma an angel surprise cake, with raspberry-fluff icing." Will Max let his bossy older sister keep him out of the kitchen? Or will they both become bunnies who bake?
