Join Us and READ FOR THE RECORD!

Reading is Believing!

On October 22, 2015, join the millions who will read the same book on the same day - Not Norman: A Goldfish Story by Kelly Bennett. A little boy receives a goldfish as a birthday present, but is not very excited about it. Other pets can do cool things - but not Norman. Throughout the story, the phrase "Not Norman" turns from a negative to a positive as the boy discovers that no other pet is quite like Norman!

Read for Pleasure, Read for Fun!

That is one of the reasons why we participate! Show students how fun it is to read, as well as set a new world record of the number of people reading the SAME STORY on the SAME DAY all across the world! Extend the love of reading with activities based on the book. Jumpstart has created a toolkit where it's as easy as selecting an activity and printing!


Read as a class or a grade level! Not Norman is available as an electronic book (e-book) so you can show it on your screen for everyone to read together!
