Read For Everyone by Jason Reynolds Online

For Everyone

Originally performed at the Kennedy Center for the unveiling of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, and later as a tribute to Walter Dean Myers, this stirring and inspirational poem is New York Times bestselling author and National Book Award finalist Jason Reynoldss rallying cry to the dreamers of the world.For Every One is just that: for every one. For every one person. For every one dream. But especially for every one kid. The kids who dream of being better than they are. Kids who dream of doing more than they almost dare to dream. Kids who are like Jason Reynolds, a self-professed dreamer. Jason does not claim to know how to make dreams come true; he has, in fact, been fighting on the front line of his own battle to make his own dreams a reality. He expected to make it when he was sixteen. Then eighteen. Then twenty-five. Now, some of those expectations have been realized. But others, the most important ones, lay ahead, and a lot of them involve kids, how to inspire them. All the kids who are scared to dream, or dont know how to dream, or dont dare to dream because theyve NEVER seen a dream come true. Jason wants kids to know that dreams take time. They involve countless struggles. But no matter how many times a dreamer gets beat down, the drive and the passion and the hope never fully extinguishbecause just having the dream is the start you need, or you wont get anywhere anyway, and that is when you have to take a leap of faith.A pitch perfect graduation, baby, or love my kid gift....

For Everyone Reviews

  • Brooke Davis

    What I love most about this is that it's not a condescending "Hey, I've figured life out, do it like this and you'll be happy forever." Reynolds, as always, highlights the complexity of life, and the ebb and flow of happiness and success. The main takeaway: Making it big doesn't mean half as much as having the courage to try.

  • Beth Honeycutt

    Loved it! Short and to the point. I thought of my daughters a lot (and about me too).

  • Samythenerdybeasty

    This isn't a full novel, but more along the lines of a poetic letter. I listened to the audiobook version which is read by the author himself which makes it seem even more personable and insightful. As someone that has always had a little voice inside pushing me to chase my dreams, while facing doubts and obstacles, this was very empowering and helped me realize that my inner dialogue is not something I experience alone. I listened to this twice and literally felt my own inner firelight begin to ...more

    Inspiring and motivating - I love how Jason Reynold gets at the heart of how messy dreams can be. How we don't always understand it, or know what we're doing, but we just have to keep jumping.

  • ❇Critterbee

    Beautiful. Everyone would benefit from reading this letter/poem of dreaming and jumping and persisting and accepting.

    "Your dream is the mole

    behind your ear,

    that chip in your

    front tooth,

    your freckles.

    It's the thing that makes

    you special,

    but not the thing that makes

    you great.

    The courage in trying,

    the passion in living,

    and the acknowledgement

    and appreciation of

    the beauty happening around

    you does that."

    Jason Reynolds, I love you.

    When life gives you lemons, read Jason Reynolds. Lord, this man! This poetic letter to every one is for everyone. The dreamers. The doubters. The hijacked. The prospered. Those afraid. Those with courage. The jumpers. Whichever you are...JUMP.

  • Alexa

    I think a lot of people will find this one super inspiring. I like how JR reflects on his own life (goals) and he definitely has a talent for words, but this poem, its just not really for me. I picked it up because I absolutely love "Long Way Down", but Im not into motivational speeches. I have my flaws and maybe one of them is my idfc- attitude, so Im very sorry, this book didnt do anything for me.

    Still, I appreciate this work of art. Its great and you should read it.

  • Colona Public Library

    I read Jason Reynolds other book "Long Way Down" and absolutely loved it. So, when I saw that he published another Young Adult Novel, I could not wait to get my hands on it. This was written similarly and it was an inspirational read. It was only a hundred pages so it was a quick read. Perfect for teenagers who don't want to commit their time to reading. This was such a great book to read for anyone who is feeling lost and needs some direction in life. There were so many quotable prose in this b ...more
