Each year, to celebrate Jumpstart's Read for the Record campaign, millions of readers come together to read the same book on the same day.
Read for the Record builds awareness of the critical importance of early literacy. In many underserved communities, children do not have access to books and enter kindergarten without the skills to be successful. If Kindergarten is hard - imagine how hard it is for them when they reach Middle and High School.... You can help by supporting Jumpstart's Read for the Record campaign.
Your gift of any amount will help Jumpstart distribute a special edition copy of Thank You, Omu! which includes activities, vocabulary words, and reading tips, to children in underserved classrooms, as well as support local reading events in their community.
Thank you for helping us to support early literacy and young children and Jumpstart's Read for the Record!
- Jen, Andrew, Ryan & Evan
PS And don't forget to read Thank You, Omu! to a child in your life on November 7!
