Jeremy's Journey Books

Jeremy's Journey Around Jacksonville!

READ USA introduced Jeremy, our fictional elementary school storyteller, to Jacksonville in early 2022, and he has since gone on many journeys with local, diverse community leaders. During his monthly adventures, Jeremy learns the personal and professional backgrounds, successes, challenges, and life stories of some of Northeast Florida’s most notable community leaders.

Every month, READ USA publishes a new volume of Jeremy’s Journey featuring a different local trailblazer who has had an impact on our community. Our Jeremy’s Journey books have a meaningful purpose: by introducing children to community leaders around them, READ USA helps make diversity and representation more visible through literacy, and exposes local children to futures that are indeed possible and attainable for them.

The innovative series plays a significant role in READ USA’s Multicultural Literacy programming, our intentional focus on the importance of providing children from all backgrounds with access to books depicting people who look like them.

Jeremy’s Journey books also partially meet elementary school social studies requirements since they feature local leaders, jobs, and geography, helping fill a gap for elementary teachers by making a locally created resource available for their curriculum.
