On this very special Thursday, October, 2nd, children from all over the United States will be treated to a reading of the same book. This year’s selection is Corduroy by Don Freeman.  this book  has been part of so many of our childhoods and now it will be read, heard, enjoyed and bought by another generation. 

Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is a campaign designed to bring attention to the importance of early education.  By encouraging hundreds of thousands of children and adults to read the same book on the same day, Jumpstart aims to break a world record and to make early education a national priority.
