I recently found out about We Give Books, an online campaign to get children and their parents reading and donating books to schools. It’s a great idea. You simply sign up to read books online with your children and the organization donates books to schools all over the country every time you read. Additionally, they have several different reading campaigns and you can choose which one to support.
This Thursday, Oct. 6 they are hosting huge reading event to break the record for the largest shared reading event. All you need to do is pledge to read in person or online to help reach the goal. This year’s book is one you and your kids will enjoy–Llama Llama Red Pajama. In addition to the world record, We Give Books hopes to use this campaign to donate 50,000 books to schools across the country.
