The Macksville City Library participated in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record for the 6th year in a row. This year, the book we read was Bunny Cakes, by Rosemary Wells.
We joined with millions of adults & children on October 21st for the world’s largest shared reading experience, and it was evident that Max & Ruby are popular characters for many kids! 🙂
“THANKS!” to the teachers & daycare for letting us share Bunny Cakes with your kids!
And, THANKS for ALL you do to promote literacy & a love of learning in our youth!
Jumpstart is a national early education organization working toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. Jumpstart delivers a research based and cost-effective program by training college students and community volunteers to serve preschool-age children in low-income neighborhoods. 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.

Update: This year, 2,383,645 people around the globe came together to celebrate literacy and to talk about the importance of high-quality early education.
And they had their largest global reach yet – including readers in Antarctica, South Korea, Trinidad and Tobago, Ukraine, Japan, Israel, Canada, and Brazil
ALSO: Remember to clip your Boxtops for Education and Campbell’s Labels for Education. These can be turned in at the library or the grade school. Boxtops help our school buy books, and Campbell’s labels are collected by the PreSchool and City Library to help us serve kids on limited budgets!
