The Gymboree Family Helps to Break the World Reading Record

Gymboree was thrilled to partner with Jumpstart for Read for the Record® on October 3. We hosted events in every Gymboree, Janie & Jack, Crazy 8, and Gymboree Play & Music location across the country, reading the book Otis to an astounding 91,414 children.

Our CEO, Mark Breitbard, finished the day by reading the book in the lobby of our headquarters to children of our employees.

At Gymboree, we have always been about kids—how they play, develop, and learn. It's is why we’re proud to have been part of a national event that raises awareness for the importance of high-quality early education.

We can’t wait to participate in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record again in 2014 and for many years to come.

Together, we can help all children build the key language and literacy skills they need to take on the world.
