El Dorado County will once again participate in the Read for the Record campaign on Thursday, October 27. Children in preschool, transitional kindergarten and kindergarten will read The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach, as part of the world’s largest shared reading experience. The book is a classic tale of a bear’s epic journey and the mystery surrounding one delicious sandwich! Books will be placed in the hands of many children across the country, and adults are encouraged to join the fun!
Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® is a national campaign that was launched over a decade ago to help children and families prepare for kindergarten. This program inspires adults to read with children, spurs policymakers, and organizations to take action towards transformative change in early education.
