We've Been Up to Some Things
Joan Rounds and Nukhet Hendricks participated in Read for the Record Day at Hunt Elementary. This national program is sponsored by Jumpstart.

The book "fosters language and social-emotional development, honors the diversity in our world, has a strong narrative, and appeals to young children.
