Read for the Record in 2018

Read for the Record in 2018

Jumpstart celebrated its 13th annual Read for the Record on Thursday, October 25th! This national campaign highlights the importance of building early literacy and language skills for EVERY child, so that all children have the opportunity to enter kindergarten prepared to succeed. 

This year’s book: “Maybe Something Beautiful” by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell, and illustrated by Rafael López. The book taught the children how art can inspire and transform a community. Many of Bright Horizons early education centers, children, and families from across the country took part in this celebration of literacy.

Here are a few highlights from this wonderful day of reading:

  • Bright Horizons at Seneca Street got a visit from Capitol Hill Police Officers during Read for the Record. They really helped make “Maybe Something Beautiful” come alive for the children!




  • What a treat! The guest reader for Read for the Record at Bright Horizons at Concord Plaza was Vincenza Carrieri-Russo, co-founder of the non-profit literacy program, Success Won’t Wait, Inc. and 2008 Miss Delaware USA. Not only did she read to the children—she even shared her special crown with them!


Celebrity guest readers, teachers, and parents helped make this yet another special day—thanks to all of you who stopped by!
