The Early Learning Hub of Linn, Benton & Lincoln Counties would like to help our partners Read for the Record this year. We will send you this year’s book -  With Lots of Love, by Jenny Torres Sanchez and illustrated by André Ceolin  - to read to your class or care group.

Last year the Early Learning Hub provided books to 72 partners that helped over 1,000 children Read for the Record.

Book orders will begin in July. If your organization would like to participate this fall, please contact us now at

Let us know if you would like a copy in English, Spanish, or both, and your name and contact information. Books are expected to begin arriving in late September.  Once your order arrives, we will contact you about delivery.

Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is the world’s largest shared reading experience and celebrates and supports children’s early language and social-emotional development. The event– a day of celebration and fun– builds an intergenerational community through reading and raises awareness around the critical importance of early literacy and access to inclusive literature that fosters belonging and connection by reflecting children’s own experiences as well as showing the experiences of others.
