The best readers have know-how and are motivated. And all kinds of reading counts – books, magazines, comics, newspapers – as long as it is done often. Establish an at-home reading routine and it will be done often! Whether you go digital or stick with ink-on-paper, the right tools are essential.
Shine a spotlight on establishing a reading routine by issuing this eight-week challenge to your young readers and families. Read at least 20 minutes per day, five days per week and you can enter for a chance to win one of 50 prize packs including a copy of Fancy Nancy, a plush doll and a Pizza Hut gift card.
Simply put - the only way to get better at reading is to do it. Children who read or are read to at home learn to read more easily. It isn’t enough, though, to know how to read. Kids have to want to read. A literacy activity that parents can participate in,
BOOK IT! was created to do just that. Let’s raise a reader!
