It's Canada vs. US in a literary show-down

Beat the reading-with-your-child world record!

Literacy organization ABC Canada is trying to beat the U.S.'s world record for "Most children reading with an adult, multiple locations." And you can help.

You need to read, with your child, five of Robert Munsch's stories which you can download and print for free here. The stories need to be read, today, and in this order:
*Purple, Green and Yellow
*Murmel, Murmel, Murmel
*Something Good

Then, register your accomplishment here.

This has to happen today, from 2 p.m. until 2 p.m. tomorrow, Jan. 23, 2009, to count towards the world record.

The current record is 78,791 set in the U.S. Currently, more than 184,000 Canadians have signed up for the world record attempt. So, who needs Henderson to score the winning goal against the Americans, anyway? Goooo team Canada!
