Preschool Storytime: Celebrate Read for the Record Day by Reading Maybe Something Beautiful

The Read for the Record campaign culminates on October 25, when people across the globe will come together to read to young children in their communities. Read for the Record is an effort to raise awareness about the need for quality early learning for all children and the transformative power of books and reading to impact student learning and engagement. This year’s book is Maybe Something Beautiful: How Art Transformed a Neighborhood by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell and illustrated by Rafael López.

What good can a splash of color do in a community of gray? As Mira and her neighbors discover, more than you might ever imagine! Based on the true story of the Urban Art Trail in San Diego, California, Maybe Something Beautiful reveals how art can inspire transformation—and how even the smallest artists can accomplish something big.

We will learn new vocabulary words, groove to some dance music, create paper birds, and paint a colorful mural! Each child will also take home a book of their choice. Pick up a paintbrush and join the celebration!
