Join schools, libraries and other organizations across the nation to help break the World Record for the most people reading the same passage simultaneously in multiple locations.
On Wednesday, December 13, 2006, at 12 noon (EST), you are invited to join students, educators, librarians and fans of Charlotte’s Web to gather in schools, hospitals, libraries and community centers to read a passage from E.B. White’s classic tale of friendship, kindness, selfless giving and miracles. It is our hope that “Break a World Reading Record with Charlotte’s Web” will introduce this wonderful story to a new generation and reintroduce the story to fans who haven’t read it since childhood.
Go to the Walden Media website
to find out how to participate today! Also available online are detailed instructions, a Charlotte’s Web
Reading Record event guide, reproducible activity sheets, registration forms, an Educator Guide, coloring sheets, fun activities and comprehensive information and tips to join this national attempt! Charlotte’s Web
opens in theaters nationwide on December 20, 2006.
