A Little Tractor and a Big Record


Drumroll please. . . Today is Jumpstart’s Read for the Record day. All over the world parents, teachers, librarians, relatives, and friends join together to read a single book in order to promote literacy. This year the chosen book is Otis by Loren Long. The Sullivan University Library and Learning Resource Center has a copy of Otis, so you can participate in this marathon read-a-thon too. 

For more information about Otis, check out these two videos.
