Join millions of readers worldwide in reading the book Thank You, Omu! by Oge Mora as part of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record program on November 7 at 10 a.m. with Miss Val!
We will take photos of the group to share the event with fellow readers on social media. We will also share in creative play with food and kitchen toys, as well as creating “foods” to go in a play soup or stew using playdough.
Additionally, we will share small portions of soup and crackers, in the spirit of the book.
According to Jumpstart’s website, “ Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® (RFTR) is an annual campaign that was launched over a decade ago to highlight the importance of building early literacy and language skills for EVERY child, so that all children have the opportunity to enter kindergarten prepared to succeed. Each year, millions of children and adults are brought together to read in classrooms, libraries, community centers, and homes across the world. Each year, Jumpstart selects one children’s book as the catalyst for Read for the Record. Since 2006, this 24-hour celebration has mobilized over 20,700,000 people!” Go here to learn more: https://www.jstart.org/read-for-the-record
