I am so excited to share the book that was chosen this year as it is written by a wonderful local author that I have worked with during my tenure at Richmond Public Library! Meg Media and her good friend, Gigi Amateau brought the fabulous Girl’s of Summer program to the library. You are going to love this book! Mark your calendar and then go to our Facebook page and click events or join here for the live event on October 29 at 11:30 AM.

About Read for the Record 

Jumpstart’s 15th annual Read for the Record is a high-visibility annual fall campaign engaging over 2 million participants who aim to:

  • Increase awareness about the critical importance and impact of early literacy
  • Make high-quality children’s books accessible for all children
  • Provide support for Jumpstart for Young Children’s work with early learners in underserved communities across the country

Sharing high-quality picture books with young children is at the core of Jumpstart’s mission. Each year, Jumpstart selects a campaign book that fosters language and social-emotional development, honors the diversity in our world, has a strong narrative, and appeals to young children. That book is read across the country and around the world by adults and young readers on Read for the Record day.
