Parents, staff and guests including Sophia Pappas, Executive Director of Early Childhood NYC Department of Education, read the children’s book Bunny Cakes to the kids at our four Early Childhood Education Centers yesterday as part of Read for the Record – a national campaign to celebrate literacy. Bunny Cakes, by bestselling author Rosemary Wells, features bunny siblings Max & Ruby as they attempt to create the perfect birthday cake for grandma.

Jumpstart’s Read for the Record annual literacy campaign started in 2006 and has mobilized millions of children and adults to participate in the largest shared reading experience in the country.
