2023 Read for the Record Selection

Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is the world’s largest shared reading experience that celebrates children’s early language and social-emotional development. The event-- a day of celebration and fun-- builds an intergenerational community through reading and raises awareness around the critical importance of early literacy and access to inclusive, high-quality books. Over our 18 years to date, more than 26 million people have participated in Read for the Record, and Jumpstart has distributed hundreds of thousands of high-quality books to children in underserved communities. 

This year, Jumpstart’s 18th Annual Read for the Record campaign will be held on October 26, 2023. Millions of people will come together that day to read With Lots of Love written by Jenny Torres Sanchez and illustrated by Andre Ceolin. Thousands of schools, libraries, organizations, and communities will celebrate early literacy by reading this beautiful story about family, finding ways to stay connected, and sharing love across distances.
