Via the Reading Zone Website, I learnt about a great event at my favourite local festival.
One of the chosen causes at the Peace in the Park Festival on 4 June 2011 in Sheffield is Self Help Africa. At the festival they are going to try and break the World Record for the most adults reading aloud to children.
They will be reading Lion Storyteller Bedtime Book led by story-teller Shona Leigh, and will be attended by adjudicators acting on behalf of the Guinness Book of Records.
I go to the festival most years, it is always great fun. This year sounds especially good!
