Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is a national campaign to encourage hundreds of thousands of children and adults to read the same book on the same day. It’s hoped that the shared reading experience will raise awareness about the early education gap that exists between income levels, as well as raise money to fund the organization’s early education work in low-income communities.

Last year, Jumpstart’s Read for the Record was The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf, raising over $1,000,000 and having over 258,000 people participating. This year’s book was Corduroy by Don Freeman, held on October 2.The celebration at the Susquehanna Community Elementary School commenced at 8:45 and continued at different times throughout the day. Each class from Pre-K through sixth grade was read to, including staff, for a total of 494 participants. As a way of adding fun to this event, staff and children brought their teddy bear or a favorite stuffed animal and wore corduroy.
