The Family Reading Event is a fun and exciting event that your school can put together to help inform your parents what the Kids Read Now program is. Most school pair the Family Reading Event with a spring assembly, ice cream social, or other community event for the school. It instructs your parents on how Kids Read Now works, what to expect, and how to report the student’s books. This event typically happens in the spring, shortly before the end of the school year. This is where your students would receive their first book and their parents would receive a Parent Guide giving them more information about Kids Read Now.
