CMST Helps Read for the Record

CMST Helps Read for the Record

October 13, 2015


The Children’s Museum of St. Tammany would like for you to join us as we participate in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record®.  This is the 10th anniversary of Read for the Record®, and we are excited to help set a new world record for the world’s largest shared reading experience.

 

On October 22, 2015 children and adults around the world will help set a new record by reading a wonderful children’s book.  This year’s campaign book, Not Norman: A Goldfish Story, written by Kelly Bennett and illustrated by Noah Z. Jones, is a humorous tale about a child who finds a new friend in an unexpected place.  The book can be accessed online on October 22nd by visiting readfortherecord.org.  

 

Jumpstart is a national early education organization working toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. Jumpstart provides language, literacy, and social-emotional programming for preschool children from under-resourced communities and promotes quality early learning for all children. By participating in Jumpstart’s year-long program, children develop the language and literacy skills they need to be ready for school, setting them on a path for lifelong success.

 

We are working with St. Tammany Parish Public School System to encourage our local Pre-kindergarten, Kindergarten, Transitional First Grade and First Grade students and teachers to participate in the shared reading. We ask that the community also participate by reading the book at home or at your local library.

 

Thank you so much for your support of Read for the Record® and for the future Children’s Museum of St. Tammany.
