Austin (KXAN) – Reading for just 20 minutes a day can make a big impact in a child’s well-being. It can transform their vocabulary, increase test scores, and even help build relationships.
That’s why KXAN is teaming up with BookSpring for their annual Read-A-Thon.
BookSpring’s Read-A-Thon runs January 28 – February 8. During that time, students and their families are encouraged to read as much as they can. Reading material can include books, magazines, comic books, and even newspapers – the sky’s the limit! Then sponsors make a monetary donation for every page read. Students, schools, and organizations can register online to get started.
All donations support childhood literacy programs right here in Central Texas.
This is the 13th year for BookSpring’s annual event. The theme of this year’s Read-A-Thon is “Monster Readers”. The goal for this year is to read 1 million pages and raise $200,000 – a nearly 20% increase from 2018.
