Read for the Record

On October 19, 2017, local children and adults will participate in Jumpstart’s national campaign Read for the Record®.  This is a global movement that was launched over a decade ago to address the importance of building early literacy and language skills for EVERY child.  Junior League volunteers will read to students across Calcasieu Parish.  Each year, Jumpstart selects one children’s book as the catalyst for Read for the Record.  This year’s campaign book is, Quackers by Liz Wong is a charming story about a kitten who grows up believing he is duck, until he meets another kitten!  This delightful book is about standing out, fitting in, and that friends come in all shapes and sizes.
