BENEFITING: Jumpstart for Young Children, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Oct 27, 2016
Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® is a national campaign that was launched over a decade ago to help address the educational inequities that leave too many children unprepared for kindergarten. On Thursday, October 27, 2016, millions of children and adults will gather to learn, laugh, and read this year's campaign book, The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach, as part of the world’s largest shared reading experience. Read for the Record inspires adults to read with children, spurs policymakers and organizations to take action towards transformative change in early education, and puts books in the hands of more children across the country.
