Choices

Students who have input choosing the books they read, are more engaged and inspired, keeping them reading throughout the summer.

Kids Read Now empowers participating families with choices throughout the program.

 

We encourage students to make their own book choices, as students who choose the books they want to read are more likely to read them. We also allow parents to choose how they want us to contact them each week throughout the summer, allowing us to reach every family, all summer long.

Kids Read Now empowers children through choice.

 

Our summer reading program provides wish lists for students to select nine preferred books to receive throughout the summer program and ships three books per student to each school to be distributed at a Family Reading Night to kick off the program.

 

We then mail one additional book to each student’s home in the middle of the summer and the five remaining books that each student chose from the Wish List to the student’s home throughout the summer, as they report books completed.

 

Each participating school receives one copy of each book on the Wish List to generate excitement and program awareness and to help teachers assist students with book selection.
