Jumpstart’s Read for the Record campaign was launched in 2006 with a different book being read by people all over the country every year. Previous year’s books:

1. “The Little Engine That Could” (2006)

2. “The Story of Ferdinand” (2007)

3. “Corduroy” (2008)

4. “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” (2009)

5. “The Snowy Day” (2010)

Students throughout Davis “read for the record” earlier this month in a nationwide effort to raise awareness about America’s early education achievement gap.

That gap is most acute in low-income neighborhoods, where children start kindergarten significantly behind their wealthier peers — and most will never catch up, according to Jumpstart, a program started in 1993 at Yale University to improve early childhood education.

Since 2006, Jumpstart has promoted a read for the record day throughout the country in order to promote awareness and raise funds. Previous read for the record events raised more than $6.3 million to support early education programs.

In Davis on Oct. 6, elementary school children joined their counterparts all over the country reading — or being read to — the book “Llama Llama Red Pajama.” At some schools, like Willett Elementary School, children were even encouraged to dress in red and/or pajamas.
