Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad-Jumpstart Read for the Record!

Today our class was counted in a world record number of students reading  "Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad" by Jacky Davis and David Soman. This book was about a play date that had a few bumps in the road when things didn't go according to the plan. "Jumpstart's Read for the Record is a call to action to Americans to recognize the importance of quality early education, especially for our most vulnerable children,” said Jumpstart’s president and CEO, Naila Bolus. “When children start behind, they tend to stay behind. The language and literacy skills instilled in preschool children by the Jumpstart program help set them on a successful path in both school and life.”  Jumpstart has raised more that $7 million for this cause together with the Pearson Foundation which has donated nearly one million books.

We are anxious to hear how many children around the world read "Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad" as we did today.  To learn more about this organization, you can visit http://www.jstart.org/.

Love, love, love that our kids are learning to impact the world and make a difference at such an early age. Hopefully, Jumpstart raises and donates much more.
