I love reading with my kids! Whether it’s at bedtime or on a rainy day, snuggling up with a good book is a great way to spend time together and grow their minds. This year, on October 3rd, we are going to read together and help break a WORLD RECORD in support of literacy and early childhood education!

Last year, more than 2.5million people across the world joined in to “Read for the Record.” This year, I want to be part of the group that breaks that record.

October 3rd is the one day where millions of people across the world sit down and pledge to read for their kids to support JumpStart’s mission to work towards the day that every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.

The Program has raised more than $8 million dollars for early education programs.

This year’s book is the highly acclaimed “Otis” by Loren Long. Take the Pledge to Read with your kids, and let me know how YOU plan on participating with your family!

Join me and millions of people across the world to raise awareness and help America’s kids succeed!

    i read to my kids daily, it is very important to me, as they get older they become amazing learners and thrive to learn about more, when they want to know something they know they can always read about it and learn. i have two teens that are so smart and love history of the world due to reading, they are very wise in some areas. i think everyone should read to their kids. great post, thanks
  2. I'm late for the record, but maybe next year. I think reading together is just so important as it's a wonderful way to encourage a lifelong love of reading.
