Read for the Record (session #320)
Again this year, the Pearson Foundation is the founding sponsor of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record Campaign, an international campaign to bring young people together with valued grownups in their lives to read the same book, on the same day, in communities all over the world. On October 7th, Pearson aims to make Read for the Record bigger than ever by sharing this year’s book “The Snow Day” online via their new We Give Books literacy initiative. In the process, record-breakers will also help donate classic children’s books to young people in classrooms across the United States.


Mark Nieker, President, The Pearson Foundation, New York
