Read for the Record

Join over 2 million participants in the world’s largest shared reading experience!

How important is reading to FasTracKids?  We answer that question by being a reading partner with Jumpstart for their premiere national campaign Read for the Record®, the world’s largest shared reading experience!  Once a year, millions of children and adults across the globe come together to read the same book on the same day.

On October 29, 2020, FasTracKids families will read the children’s book Evelyn Del Rey Is Moving Away by Meg Medina, to promote early childhood literacy.  This story is a celebration of lasting friendship, the power of connection, and encountering change.

Participating FasTracKids centers and schools will host either a small classroom event (based on local health and safety protocols) or a virtual event to help break a world reading record! Events can include a digital book reading with fun classroom or at-home book activities.

Here’s how you and your family can participate:

Option 1: Contact your local participating FasTracKids center or school about their event
Option 2: Go to our Facebook Event on October 29th to read along with us (Coming Soon!)
Option 3: Pledge to read at home by going to ReadfortheRecord.org
