Jumpstart will celebrate their 13th Annual Read for the Record on October 25, 2018. They are inviting everyone to read this year's selection, Maybe Something Beautiful by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell and illustrated by Rafael Lopez.
Jumpstart's Read for the Record brings together millions of people each year in classrooms, libraries, community centers and homes across the United States. This annual campaign was launched over a decade ago to highlight the importance of building early literacy and language skill for every child so that all children have the opportunity to enter kindergarten prepared to succeed. Check your local library for special activities.
Can art transform a grey community? Maybe Something Beautiful: How Art Transformed a Neighborhood tells the true story of the Urban Art Trail in San Diego, California through the eyes and inspiration of a young girl who brings a splash of color to her community.
