Vote for the Jumpstart Campaign Book!

Jumpstart's Read for the Record needs help selecting its official campaign book for 2010. This is Jumpstart's fifth annual Read for the Record, which they describe as "a worldwide campaign to raise awareness about the crisis in early literacy through celebrating the joy of reading with children."

Four classic Penguin picture books have been named the finalists:
Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey
Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey
Peter's Chair by Ezra Jack Keats
The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats

Voting only takes a minute, and it's so easy to do. For every vote received, the Pearson Foundation will donate $1 to Jumpstart to support, and I quote, "[Jumpstart's] yearlong efforts to help preschool children in low-income communities develop the crucial language and literacy skills they need to succeed in school and life."

You may also vote via a text message sent from your cell phone. You may vote up to 5 times via text message. Here are the text shortcuts:

DUCK to 90999 – to vote for Make Way for Ducklings
PETER to 90999 – to vote for Peter's Chair

Book voting will close February 28th, 2010. The winner will be announced March 2nd.
