Read for the record

Today we helped set a world record for the most kids reading the same book: bunny cakes where a brother and sister bunny make a cake for grandma's birthday. (Jstart.org/campaigns/read-record)
The kids made their own bunny cakes 

They made one cake out of play doh and one real cake and asked the parents "which one would you eat first?"
