Youth Services Staff Reads for the Record with Otis by Loren Long on October 3, 2013
Thursday, October 3, 2013 was a day for the record books! Across the country and around the world, millions of adults and children read Otis by Loren Long. In celebration of Read for the Record, our very own Miss Heidi, Miss Laurel, and Miss Nancy read Otis to story time groups. Everyone had a marvelous time, and contributed to the world record for the largest shared reading experience!
Miss Heidi and Miss Laurel read with the Ready for Reading storytime. This program uses stories, musical games, and word play to engage and enrich children, focusing on a different letter friend each week. Please see our online calendar for more information.
Miss Nancy read in four different classrooms at North School, including grades K-4 and hearing impaired students.
Read for the Record is a campaign of Jumpstart, a national early education organization that recruits and trains college students and community Corps members to serve preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. Read for the Record is presented in partnership with the Pearson Foundation. The aim of the campaign, which began in 2006, is to celebrate literacy and bring vital attention to the importance of high-quality early childhood education.
