Did you participate in last October’s Read for the Record Event? I did and I’m getting ready to sign up again!
This is the campaign that brings children and adults together to read the same book, on the same day, in homes and communities all over the world? The campaign also kicks off Jumpstart’s year-long program, preparing preschool children in low-income neighborhoods for success in school and life.
Last year, more than TWO MILLION children read Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar in support of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record, successfully setting a new world record! This year, Jumpstart aims to make history once again when children across the country and world read Ezra Jack Keats’ The Snowy Day together on October 7 at schools, libraries, stores, hotels, playgrounds, offices, and homes.
EVENT DATE: Thursday, October 7th
There are many ways to help:
Pledge to read The Snowy Day on October 7th – it’s easy, just sign up beforehand, and then on October 7th after you read the book to a child, visit and confirm that you did!
Buy this years book, The Snowy Day, for just $6.99 and ALL the proceeds will go towards Jumpstart’s Read for the Record program!
Read the Snowy Day online -avail 10/7, event day for those who don’t own the book
Engage in Creative “Snowy” Activities to make learning fun, created by early education experts (making snowflakes & more)
