Siouxland Libraries Read for the Record

Sioux Falls area children and adults will join a nationwide attempt to break a world record by reading the same book on the same day.

The 2018 book is Maybe Something Beautiful by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell; illustrated by Rafael López. The day is Thursday, October 25, 2018. It’s part of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record campaign, which encourages shared reading for early learners.

The annual campaign was launched more than a decade ago to highlight the importance of building early literacy and language skills for every child so that all children enter kindergarten prepared to succeed.

A roster of local celebrities, including Sioux Falls Mayor Paul TenHaken, fire fighters and police officers, local business owners, and media personalities, will read at participating schools and day cares. The October 25, 2018 edition of KELOland Living will also include a reading at 2 p.m.
