Read for the Record 2017

Read for the Record 2017: Celebrating Individuality and Self-Acceptance

Read for the Record is an annual campaign to bring attention to early literacy and language skills though the massive shared reading of an engaging picture book.  Jumpstart, the early childhood organization that puts on the event, is aiming to break their own world record that they set in 2013 with 2,462,860 people. While Jumpstart does provide activity sheets, a reading guide, and more to support teachers who would like to participate, we at Custom Education Solutions thought it would be great to extend the themes of individuality and acceptance through text sets, book clubs, or independent reading at all grade levels.
