Join the 2009 “Read with Kids Challenge”
There are some wonderful celebrity names getting behind this great challenge by being honorary team captains, including: children’s book authors Mo Willems and Sandra Boynton, and TV personalities Al Roker and Jerry Seinfeld. You can create your own team and invite your friends to join it. You can also join our team: The Children’s Book Review (team code: 124112908486). Registrants can also join individually.
More fun stuff …
“Happy Passengers” is an area on the site that you can visit to see what other children are reading. You can even leave your child’s “happy” book for others to see. The “Fun for Kids” area has activity pages, on-line stories, and games.
But wait there’s more …
“All participants will be entered to win a grand prize drawing of a Walt Disney World®; Resort vacation package from US Airways Vacations, US Airways gift cards, and other great prizes. The team determined by random drawing will win the opportunity to select a featured RIF program, as well as a school in their community, to receive a special children’s book collection.”
“US Airways—the official airline of RIF—is also encouraging customers, employees, and readers nationwide to support children’s literacy by making a donation to RIF. Donors can receive a special edition of Off You Go, Maisy!–a children’s book by best-selling author Lucy Cousins-and be eligible to receive up to 5,000 US Airways Dividend Miles.”
