Each year, millions of adults and children gather on a single day to set a new reading record and to show their support for early literacy by joining Jumpstart's Read for the Record.
On October 4 children and adults read together to set a new world record and to raise awareness about the importance of early childhood literacy.
The 2012 Jumpstart's Read for the Record book is Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad, written by David Soman and Jacky Davis.
About the Read for the Record Campaign
Presented in partnership with the Pearson Foundation, Jumpstart's Read for the Record annually encourages record-breakers to spread the word that reading with a child before he or she enters kindergarten can improve his or her chances of graduating from high school by as much as 30 percent. With high-profile local events that include civic leaders, teachers, and families; and the widespread support of leading education and literacy organizations, the campaign brings much-needed attention to the early literacy crisis and — in the process — showcases Jumpstart's role in addressing this issue in U.S. preschools.
