Event Details

Join Miss Jan for story time - a different theme each week! If the day is nice, Story Time will be held outdoors. Miss Jan will also sing some fun songs and offer a craft.

THURS, OCT. 26 is the annual READ FOR THE RECORD DAY Story Time: 

From Jumpstart's website: "Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is the world’s largest shared reading experience and celebrates and supports children’s early language and social-emotional development. The event– a day of celebration and fun– builds an intergenerational community through reading and raises awareness around the critical importance of early literacy and access to inclusive literature that fosters belonging and connection by reflecting children’s own experiences as well as showing the experiences of others. 

More than 26 million people have participated in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record.  This year's selection is With Lots of Love by Jenny Torres Sanchez, illustrated by André Ceolin, a beautiful story about family, finding ways to stay connected, and sharing love across distances, today! 

Every year, Jumpstart works with early education experts and our publishing partner to create a paperback special edition of the Read for the Record book selection. This special edition copy, available in English and Spanish, includes a reading guide and is designed to help deepen children’s understanding of the book and is exclusively available through Jumpstart. 

The themes of familial relationships, food, celebrations, and connecting with loved ones over long distances in With Lots of Love will be sure to inspire and comfort young children and families all year long!"
