October 2020: Read For The Record!


Jumpstart’s Read for the Record brings together millions of adults and children around the world each year to read the same book on the same day in order to raise awareness about the critical importance of early literacy and access to high-quality books. This year, Read for the Record will take place on October 29, 2020.



The Early Learning Coalition of Palm Beach County, Inc. is excited to support this awareness event on an annual basis. The 2020 Read For The Record chosen book is "Evelyn Del Rey is Moving Away" by Meg Medina. This book is a celebration of lasting friendship, the power of connection and encountering change.
