    Read for the Record is an annual, national event by Jumpstart.org. Every year in October, on the same day, at roughly the same time, children all over the U.S. hear the same book read to them by a caring adult. Smart Beginnings Central Virginia organizes the local event, recruiting volunteers to give an hour of their time visiting a preschool class, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, or a childcare center to read the book of the year. In 2016, 6,500 children were read to, breaking our local Read for the RECORD!
