October 2022: Read For The Record!

The October 2022 Awareness Campaign is Read for the Record. Read for the Record is a high–visibility annual fall campaign that aims to increase awareness about the critical importance and impact of early literacy. This year's Read for the Record Book is Nigel and the Moon by Antwan Eady.

Nigel and the Moon is about a young boy who dreams big but is too scared to share his dreams with the world. Instead, every night he tells his dream of becoming an astronaut, dancer, and superhero to the moon. As his class moves through career week, Nigel’s community helps him build up confidence in who he is. This book encourages children to celebrate where they come from, who they are, and who they want to be.

The Literacy Coalition is coordinating Read for the Record in Palm Beach County for the 17th year on October 27, 2022.
