Jumpstart Read for the Record *Giveaway*

UPDATE: Congrats to Marcela, who won the Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad book! Please email me at with your address. Thanks to everyone who participated!

You know I love reading -- and I especially love reading to CC. It's so important to both Ian and me that her world is filled with imaginative books that she can pick from every night before bed.

That's why I love programs that promote reading among children, and Jumpstart's Read for the Record is a great one. (You might remember earlier posts about the annual campaign here and here.)

This year, Jumpstart is hoping to break a record by having kids all over the country read the children's book Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad by David Soman and Jacky Davis on Oct. 4. (Last year, 2.2 million people participated.)

CC and I read it before bedtime tonight, and it's an imaginative story about Lulu, a girl who leads her friends on a fun bug-themed adventure outdoors. But she has her own friendship lesson to learn when she does something without asking first.

CC loved the costumes illustrated in the book, and I know we'll be reading it again -- especially on Oct. 4. You can, too, by either purchasing the book or reading it online for free. Also ...

*** GIVEAWAY ***

I'm giving away 1 copy of Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad, courtesy of Jumpstart.

To enter, please leave a comment telling me your child's favorite book.
For more chances to win, follow me on Twitter and retweet this giveaway. I'm at @la_story. Or you can "Like" the L.A. Story Facebook page and share the giveaway.

Good luck, and I will announce the winner on Wednesday, Oct. 4!
