Read For The Record® @ Stewartsville Library
Nov 7 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Thank You, Omu! by Oge Mora
Visit the Stewartsville Library this afternoon as we join the millions of children and adults who’ll be participating in this year’s Jumpstart Read For The Record® event!
Jumpstart is celebrating the 14th anniversary of its annual campaign that asks people to read the same book on the same day.  The purpose of this program is to bring attention to inequities in early childhood education and inspire adults to read with children.  This year’s book selection, Thank You, Omu! by Oge Mora tells the story of a generous elderly woman who makes a fantastic pot of thick red stew. The scent from her stew travels all throughout her neighborhood and brings all of her community members over to her home for a taste. By the end, she shares a lovely feast with her neighbors where everyone contributes to the meal.
Please call and register for this event 540-425-7008 ext. 3.  For ages 4-10.
