MINUTES READ

 

 

Get ready for the BIGGEST summer ever!
 

The 2019 Scholastic Read-a-Palooza Summer Reading Challenge kicks off on Monday, May 6. That's when you'll be able to enter your reading minutes!

And don't forget – the faster you reach minute milestones, the faster you unlock book donations to kids in need across the country.

GET BOOKS TO KIDS IN NEED

As part of the Scholastic Read-a-Palooza Summer Reading Give Back, as you reach designated minute milestones in the Summer Reading Challenge, you’ll unlock book donations from Scholastic with help from United Way to kids who have limited or no access to books.
 

There are three major minute milestones this summer, and the more minutes you collectively enter, the faster you get 200,000 books into the hands of kids in need.
 

  • Kids reached 25 million minutes and unlocked the first book donation of the summer on Wednesday, May 29! Congratulations, readers!
  • Kids reached 50 million minutes and unlocked the summer's second book donation on Saturday, June 22!
  • Third donation unlocked: 100 million minutes
