Jumpstart YPB SF Chapter wrote -Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® (RFTR) is a national campaign that highlights the importance of early literacy for all children, while also raising funds to support Jumpstart’s programing in communities across the country. On Thursday, October 19, 2017, millions of children and adults will gather to learn, laugh, and read this year’s campaign book, Quackers by Liz Wong. Jumpstart is working towards the day ALL children enter kindergarten prepared to succeed. Children with strong literacy and language skills are more likely to succeed in kindergarten, and a love of reading can foster a love of learning that will benefit children for years to come. You can support Read for the Record and help Jumpstart tackle early literacy by putting books into the hands of children who need them most. Donate today!
