Local Law Firm Helps Break World Record for Most Books Read in a Single Day
On October 3rd, 2013 at 10:00 AM, volunteers across the country will participate in the annual Read for the Record event that helps pre-K kids learn to read with the help of thousands of local community personalities. One local group is participating by reading to children at the Luciano Martinez Center in Palm Springs to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.
For Immediate Release (10/3/2013) – West Palm Beach, FL. – One year ago this week, more than 2.3 million volunteers from communities across the nation convened on their local pre-K and elementary classrooms to read Ladybug Girls and the Bug Squad to groups of 3-6 year olds.
Why? To set a new world record for most people reading the same book on the same day, and raise awareness for the importance of childhood literacy.
Read for the Record is an annual event organized by JumpStart, a Boston, MA-based non-profit committed to early childhood development and learning in partnership with Pearson.
On October 3rd, 2013 at 10:00 AM, volunteers from the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb P.A. will come together at the Luciano Martinez Child Development Center in Palm Springs to read to several different classrooms of 10-12 mostly Spanish-speaking 5-6 year olds in English, an effort encouraged by the teachers at the center to help the children prepare for an English language-centered education.
The event is part of the firm’s community campaign to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, observed from September 15th, 2013 through October 15th, 2013.
The Hispanic Human Resources Council (HHRC) has partnered with The Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb and their staff to commit volunteers from the firm to read the adorable story of Otis, a lovable tractor who befriends a calf, in coordination with millions of other volunteers and children throughout the country.
Craig Goldenfarb shares in the vision of JumpStart. “I have watched my two daughters go through their elementary education. I have seen how influential these preschool developmental years can be and how reading can develop and expand their minds. I’m really happy to know I have staff that share my feelings, and are willing to take time out of their morning to help the children at the Luciano Martinez Center develop a love for reading.”
Spencer T. Kuvin, Director of Litigation for the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, sees Read for the Record as an opportunity to honor the Hispanic culture. “The children of the Luciano Martinez Center are the future of the Hispanic community in our town and our county. I’m excited to see first-hand the work that this wonderful organization is doing for this young generation.”
Spencer T. Kuvin will be on location and available for press quotes, interviews, or queries.
