Today we are having a special pajama storytime to go hand-in-hand with our participation in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record day this year. This year’s book was Lllama Llama Red Pajama, by Anna Dewdney. All across the country, children, parents, teachers, and librarians joined together to all read the same book today to bring attention to early literacy, and to also hopefully break a reading record of having as many people as possible all reading the same book on the same day.
If you missed out, here is a great video of the author herself reading Llama Llama Red Pajama:
Another classic bedtime book we’re reading today is Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak:
We also read Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed by Eileen Christelow, How do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight by Jane Yolen, and Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready For Bed? by Barney Saltzberg.
Another great book to share at bedtime is Bill Martin’s Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
