MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Shelby County Schools celebrated literacy Thursday as part of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record.
The national campaign celebrates the power of reading and the importance of language skills. Volunteers across the country read the same book to children everywhere, all on the same day.
ABC24 headed to Shelby Oaks Elementary, where the kids enjoyed story time.
Jumpstart produces a special edition each year for the event, and the 2022 featured book was Nigel and the Moon by Antwan Eady, about being proud of who one is and where they come from and building confidence.
