Read for the Record 2015

Generations participated in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® on Thursday, October 22, 2015.  This annual celebration highlights the need for early education by mobilizing adults and children to read the same book on the same day.

Early language and literacy skills set children on the path to school success.  This year we read, “Not Norman,” by Kelly Bennett and illustrated by Noah Z. Jones. This is the 10th anniversary of the campaign which has become global.  Children in countries worldwide, such as Mexico, Romania, Bermuda, Trinidad and Tobago and beyond are sharing this reading experience!

Since the campaign began in 2006, more than 14.5 million people have participated!
