Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is a national campaign that was launched over a decade ago to address the educational inequities that leave too many children unprepared for kindergarten. On Thursday, October 27, 2016 over 2.35 million children and adults gathered 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, and we are delighted that Read for the Record once again inspired adults to read with children, spurred policymakers and organizations to take action towards transformative change in early education, and put books in the hands of more children across the country. Stay tuned for announcements about 2017!
