Jumpstart Read for the Record 2010: CHIP reads The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats

October 7, 2010

[tweetmeme] October 7, 2010 marks the day of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record campaign which aims to break a world record for having the most people read the same book on the same day. This event is also in partnership with the Pearson Foundation. The Center for High Impact Philanthropy wanted to participate in this event by reading this book online. You can also participate by visiting: http://www.readfortherecord.org/site/PageServer?pagename=prepare_online.

In Pathways to Student Success: A Guide to Translating Good Intentions Into Meaningful Impact, Jumpstart was identified by our Center as a Promising Practice for “Building school readiness skills through increased time in one-on-one relationships with trained, caring adults.”

Autumn Walden and Ashley Bernard took some time out of their day to read and record The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. You can listen to this recording on our podcast channel and on iTunes. We’re happy to be a part of this great event to promote reading and literacy not only in the United States, but around the world. Please visit the Center’s website to find out more about our work in U.S. Education: http://www.impact.upenn.edu/us-domestic-issues/reports/category/education/.

    While this post took place quite a while ago, I applaud your efforts to focus on reading. In a recent study it was found that the unemployment rate among those with a college education is around 4%. reading and education is clearly the key to success and in this economy survival. My hat is off to you for your efforts.
