Greetings From Janielle Taylor, MBA

Jumpstart and our Read for the Record Campaign
Well, the BIG day is less than 1 month away!

Jumpstart’s premiere national campaign, Read for the Record, presented in partnership with the Pearson Foundation, is one time of the year when millions of individuals come together to celebrate literacy and support Jumpstart in its efforts to promote early childhood education. On October 3rd, people across the country will read the children’s book “Otis” by Loren Long in support of Jumpstart’s mission to work towards the day that every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.
I want you to be included in that number…How can you do that? Easy!!

1.) Log onto and pledge to read. Pledge to read to one child, two children or a whole classroom.

2.) Get a copy of this year’s campaign book, “Otis” by Loren Long,  from a local retailer. Or, if you can’t purchase it, log onto our official reading partner’s website and read it online at

3.) On October 3rd, you’re welcome to join us at the Chicago Children’s Museum, 700 E. Grand Ave. from 5p – 8p for our Official Read for the Record event.

4.) Tell everyone you know…because we want them to be counted in that number on October 3rd also!! If they don’t have any kids to read to they can make a pledge which will purchase books for our partner children and allow us to continue our mission.
Thank you for your continued support and Happy Reading!!
