On October 21, 2014 The Westmont Montessori School’s students and teachers proudly continued a tradition of celebrating literacy by participating in the Jumpstarts’ premier annual national campaign, Read for the Record®. The campaign brings preschool children together to read the same book, on the same day, in communities all over the country. This year’s featured book, Bunny Cakes, is a “comical story of sibling bonding and birthday shenanigans” by bestselling author and illustrator Rosemary Wells.
Since its launch in 2006, millions have participated in the hopes of supporting Jumstart’s mission: “to work toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. “ Books featured in the past: The Little Engine that Could, The Story of Ferdinand, Corduroy, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Snowy Day, To learn more about Jumpstart’s Read for the Record, click http://www.jstart.org/
