i just pledged online to read "the very hungry caterpillar" by eric carle with malcolm tomorrow. october 8th is jumpstart's read for the record day, which aims to raise awareness about the importance of reading with young children. it also helps to raise funds in support of jumpstart’s year-round work with preschool children in low-income communities across the country. eric carle will be appearing on the today show (on nbc) tomorrow morning to share his classic story. you should also go and pledge to read this wonderful story with your children, but you'll have to hurry and click here to register before the event begins. i'm sorry, i should have posted about this last week before we left for our trip, but i forgot... and now it is almost too late. but read the story tomorrow, even if you aren't able to be officially counted!
p.s. i will post about disneyland when i have more time.
