Wendy and DB are thrilled to announce our latest partnership with Jumpstart For Young Children, a national early education nonprofit working toward the day every child enters kindergarten prepared to succeed!
For 16 years, Jumpstart’s global campaign, Read for the Record, has raised awareness about the importance of early literacy by bringing people together to read the same book on the same day – at home, in classrooms, libraries, and more! To increase access to high-quality books, Jumpstart selects a new picture book each year and publishes a special edition paperback filled with exclusive educational activities.
On October 28th, we will read Amy Wu and the Patchwork Dragon by Kat Zhang, a story exploring cultural symbols, family, and the power of self-affirmation that children and adults alike will have fun discovering and discussing in their own lives.
To kick off celebrations, we wrote an official Read for the Record theme song:
