Jumpstart Read for the Record

On October 19, 2017 millions of adults and children will read Quackers by Liz Wong, as part of Jumpstart’s national campaign, https://www.jstart.org/read-for-the-record/, to raise awareness about the importance of early childhood education and to support its mission to work towards the day that every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.  Every year Jumpstart sets a new world record by mobilizing adults and children across the country to read the same book on the same day.  In Seattle, our Jumpstart Team Leaders and Community Volunteers will read and deliver books to over 300 children at our partner preschools in Seattle.   To participate in this event, contact our Volunteer Coordinators at jstart@uw.edu or visit us in Mary Gates Hall suite 171!
