Day 5: Happy International Children's Day!
Hello from Pittsburgh, where I've traveled to give a talk tonight at the Fred Rogers Center. (Some of you might have known Fred better as MISTER Rogers!) To me, he was an inspiration, a mentor, and a friend, and it's an honor to be speaking here tonight.
Our team has spent a lot of this weekend reading all of the questions you've been posting and sending in, and writing clear answers. We'll be sharing many of those with you tomorrow, so please check back!
And if you didn't know, today is International Children's Day in many countries around the world. It's a day set aside to celebrate children and childhood. And take it from me: there's no better way to celebrate it than by sitting down and reading with a child!
If you do, you'll be helping to create a life-long reader. But you don't have to take my word for it: try it and see for yourself!
If you want to help us keep moving toward our stretch goals, it's easy! Take just a moment and share this message (or one of your own) on social media:
It’s #InternationalChildrensDay. Celebrate w/ us by pledging $5 to bring @ReadingRainbow to more kids & classrooms! http://bit.ly/rreverywhere
