Read for the Record - Oneonta World of Learning

Enriching Life

Through Play

Help beat the reading record for the most people reading the same book within a 24-hour period! This annual campaign was launched by Jumpstart over a decade ago to highlight the importance of building early literacy and language skills for every child, so that all children have the opportunity to enter kindergarten prepared to succeed.

Free admission with your order of Quackers by Liz Wong (List price $15.99; Contact us to order yours through OWL before 9/27 for a special $10 price); otherwise our regular admission rates apply ($5 per child or free for OWL members.)

This event is will feature an assortment of Quackers-related activities.

“Wong’s delightful illustrations perfectly capture the sweet silliness of this story. Children will appreciate Quackers’s quirky dilemma, and the underlying message that friends do not have to be all the same will surely not be lost on young listeners.” —School Library Journal

“This picture-book debut about a cat with a paw in two worlds is at times charming, at times laugh-out-loud funny, and its ugly-duckling case of mistaken identity will endear it to many.” —Booklist
