Today, Commissioner Colbourne participated in the annual Read for the Record
at Silver Shores Child care in Miramar, with the book "Thank You, Omu!"
This annual campaign was launched over a decade ago to highlight the importance of building early literacy and language skills for EVERY child.
Thank You, Omu! tells the story of a generous elderly woman who makes a fantastic pot of thick red stew. The scent from her stew travels all throughout her neighborhood and brings all of her community members over to her home for a taste. By the end, she shares a lovely feast with her neighbors where everyone contributes to the meal.
