This shared reading event is the largest in the nation, and it brings millions of people together through the love of reading. This year is the 13th anniversary of Jumpstart’s national campaign, whose goal is to address the importance of every child being prepared to succeed in school through the development of language and literacy skills. 2018’s featured read aloud book is Maybe Something Beautiful by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell. This inspirational book showcases the power of art, community, and how one little artist makes a huge impact showing everyone that anyone can make a big difference!
