When kids read, their whole world opens up. Everything becomes possible. And when they share their love of reading and take informed action, they help make a difference in their schools and communities, and help create a world full of possible. Here are some great examples of how teachers and students are already making a difference.
Viewers of November’s “BIGGERTHAN Words“ live webcast with Usher helped the Scholastic Possible Fund put 100,000 books into the hands of children who need them most by choosing which literacy organization they wanted the books to go to.
We then gave teachers and students the opportunity to actively connect with and share the power of reading in their lives with our “BIGGERTHAN Booklist Challenge.“ Check out the top 10 “BIGGERTHAN Books“ they chose here!
And remember to keep the momentum going throughout the year—small actions all add up in making a huge difference in the lives of countless children.
