“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
Dr. Seuss, “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!”
We all know that reading can help children:
Give them a sense of the structure of language.
Stimulate the imagination.
Help them learn to listen and concentrate.
Soothe and relax.
Stimulate social skills and emotional development.
Helps them explore their world.
Motivate them to learn.
But did you know reading can be for a world record? Jumpstart’s Read for the Record campaign brings children together with valued grownups in their lives to read the same book, on the same day, in communities all over the world. Join Jumpstart and FasTracKids while we read and break last year’s record.
This year, on October 27 we will read The Bear Ate Your Sandwich, a classic tale of a bear’s epic journey and the mystery surrounding one delicious sandwich!
