Read for the Record!
Thursday, October 25, 2018
Help us break the world reading record for the most people reading the same book on the same day. We’ll be reading Maybe Something Beautiful with hundreds of other people across the nation! Make a fun story-inspired craft in the Family Art Center and helps us paint a beautiful mural afterwards! Free to CMLH Members and visitors with paid admission.
This year’s book selection, Maybe Something Beautiful, by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell, and illustrated by Rafael López, celebrates the magic that can happen when a community comes together to create something beautiful and bring about change — a fitting metaphor for a campaign that features thousands of events in communities across the country each year. Every year, Jumpstart produces a special edition of its Read for the Record campaign book that features vocabulary tips, reading comprehension questions, and more resources to ‘jumpstart’ a child’s curiosity.
