Thousands of children and adults across Palm Beach County on Thursday will read the same book, The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach, on the same day as part of Jumpstart's Read for the Record initiative.
  
The goal is to break a world record by involving millions of adults in reading the nationally selected book on a single day to the most children ever.
    
The literacy coalition of Palm Beach County is coordinating the activities.

Kristin Calder, the CEO of the Literacy coalition of Palm Beach County discusses the campaign.
