Jump start Read for the Record with the South Shore Children's Museum

10/19/2017 - 10:30am

Join us and South Shore Children's Museum on October 19 to take part in the READ FOR THE RECORD with Jumpstart. 

Join the millions of children and adults who’ll be participating in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® this year! Jumpstart is celebrating the 12th anniversary of its annual campaign, which gathers over 2 million people together around the world to read the same book on the same day. Read for the Record brings much needed attention to inequities in early childhood education, inspires adults to read with children, spurs policymakers and organizations to take action towards transformative change in early education, and puts books in the hands of children across the country.

This year’s campaign book, Quackers by Liz Wong, is a wonderful story that follows a kitten who grows up believing he is a duck. This tale is about understanding, acceptance, and learning it’s ok to be whoever you want to be.
