The early childhood eduventure Jumpstart has teamed up with the Pearson Foundation to try and break the world record for adults reading the same book to children on the same day, October 8. You may not be named in the Guinness Book if you participate, but you’ll contribute to Jumpstart’s effort to donate 250,000 books, raise $2.5 million to support early literacy, and lift awareness about the significant long-term payoff for kids of early reading. Plus, you’ll learn what an ice-cream cone, a pickle, and a slice of salami have in common. Learn more here.
