Head Start to Read for the Record

posted 10/13/23 -- Head Start annually participates in a global reading experience designed to promote both early language and social-emotional development.

Jumpstart has organized the event for 18 years and more than 24 million people have participated. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of books have been distributed to children in underserved communities.

Head Start will read With Lots of Love on Oct. 19, a week before the global event on Oct. 26 for which two million readers are estimated.

With Lots of Love was written by Jenny Torres-Sanchez and illustrated by Andre Ceolin. It’s a beautiful, lyrical story about a girl who moves from her home in Central America to the United States, and everything she leaves behind and longs for—especially her Abuela—as she makes a new life.

LCCAA has always invited guest readers for this event. Please contact your child’s teacher if you would like to read.
