First Year Associate, John Atkinson, reads to preschool students as part of the Read for the Record program.

. . .and practice makes perfect.  So, last week 12 attorneys and managers read – to preschoolers – the book Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad by David Soman as part of Read for the Record, an international event aimed at raising awareness about the importance of reading to young children. 

We’ve written about the value of community involvement and pro bono during the summer associate program here and here, but it was nice to see some of our first year associates taking that to heart as they start their legal careers. 

It was also really fun to see John Atkinson interacting with preschool children.  I can assure you that was the first time these junior associates read about ladybugs during the workday!

Each of the twelve volunteers read to a class of children at Catholic Charities Sagrada Familia Childcare Center, a center serving low income families in Miami, and United Way Impact Partner.  Our participation was part of our involvement with the United Way of Miami-Dade.
