Did You Read for the Record Yesterday?
Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is one day of the year when millions of individuals come together to celebrate literacy and support Jumpstart in its efforts to promote early childhood education. Yesterday, adults and children across the country read Bunny Cakes, by Rosemary Wells, in support of Jumpstart’s mission to work towards the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.
Many Bright Horizons child care centers participated in this fun day of literacy and enjoyed storytime in their own classrooms. From visits by celebrity guest readers to Bunny Cakes themed hands-on learning activities, Read for the Record Day was a blast for all children, families, guests and center staff members involved.
