Bright Horizons Reads for the Record 2016

Bright Horizons Reads for the Record 2016

Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is the world’s largest shared reading experience when millions of individuals come together to celebrate literacy and support Jumpstart in its efforts to promote early childhood education. This past week adults and children across the country read The Bear Ate Your Sandwich, by Julia Sarcone-Roach, in support of Jumpstart’s mission to work towards the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.

Many Bright Horizons child care centers took part in this fun day of reading and enjoyed storytime in their own classrooms. From visits by celebrity guest readers to bear-themed hands-on learning activities, Read for the Record Day was enjoyed by children, families, guests and center staff members involved.

Here’s just a sampling of the fun Read for the Record events and readings that took place across the country:
