October 26th is Jumpstart’s Read for the Record Day in Broward County and beyond! It is the world’s largest shared reading experience to celebrate children’s early language and social-emotional development. This year’s selected book is With Lots of Love written by Jenny Torres Sanchez and illustrated by Andre Ceolin. This book is a story about a girl who has moved to the United States from her home in Central America, away from everything she leaves behind and longs for- especially her Abuela. Rocio does her best to adjust to a new way of living, but there are many things she misses from her old life – Abuela’s cooking, Abuela’s piñata creations, Abuela’s warm hugs, and of course, Abuela herself most of all. But Abuela finds a way to send Rocio something special just in time for her birthday.
Each family will receive a copy of the book, while supplies last.
A fun craft will follow the reading of the book to take home and enjoy!
