Read For The Record

With Elizabeth Mulderig

Are you homeschooling children? Please join us at 2pm on October 22nd for Read For The Record with Bermuda’s best selling children’s author Elizabeth Mulderig. 

Every year, over two million children and adults come together for Read For The Record, a global movement in which everyone reads the same book on the same day. The event, which was established 15 years ago, is the world’s largest shared reading experience and aims to raise awareness of the importance of early literacy. 

Please join us at the Bermuda National Gallery at 2pm on Thursday October 22nd to hear Elizabeth Mulderig, author and illustrator of the best-selling Tiny the Tree Frog series read this year’s title Evelyn Del Rey is Moving Away by Meg Medina, a story about friendship and connection times at children from Early Years to P3.

This a free event. Spaces are limited and must be booked in advance. Click here to sign up today.

Bermuda’s participation in Read For The Record, organised by the Bermuda Youth Library, stands at 673 students and 17 schools. We invite all children who are homeschooled to join us at the Bermuda National Gallery to help break the record and celebrate the joy of literature.
