Canadians, Join the Family Literacy Day World Record Attempt!

In 2006, a world record was set in the USA when 78,791 people read to a child for 30 minutes.  ABC CANADA Literacy Foundation and Oxford Learning are asking Canadians of all ages to join in the attempt to break the Guinness World Record for “Most Children Reading With an Adult, Multiple Locations”.

Everyone participating in the World Record Attempt must read the complete Munschworks 2 collection by Robert Munsch or the 5 individual books from the collection in the following order:

  1. Pigs
  2. Mortimer
  3. Purple, Green and Yellow
  4. Murmel, Murmel, Murmel
  5. Something Good

The Family Literacy Day World Record Attempt will be held across Canada at various locations on January 23 and January 24, 2009. For full details, registration and event location information, or if you would like to host an event, visit the ABC CANADA site.
