Scholastic Challenges Kids To Read this Summer

Encourage your children to be Ambassadors of Reading.

The Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge is a free online program designed to motivate children to become avid readers. Kids can log minutes they spend reading and they earn rewards in return.

It’s super easy and fun. Plus, kids can read for the World Record. As of June 1, 2012, Scholastic reported that readers are halfway to beating the World Reading record which is 64,213,141 Minutes read, which was set in 2011.

The site also has tips and resources for parents and educators. Mobile users can download the free Scholastic Reading Timer app to further motivate students to read every day.
