Today I had the privilege to perform for the students at the Savannah Country Day School as part of the day of celebration for completing their Reading Challenge and coming in sixth place. Not sixth place in Savannah, not sixth place in Georgia, not sixth place in the United States, but sixth place in the WORLD!!!!! They will now be recognized, along with the rest of the top twenty schools, in the Guinness Book of World Records put out by Scholastic! How exciting - and I got to perform for them! And on a real stage in a great auditorium no less! Great way to start the fall season of school programs.
Here's a link to the article: World Record Readers!
I hope these students inspire everyone to READ, READ, READ!!!!
