What is the goal of the program?
The goal of Reach for the Stars is for children to read - or be read to - for 300 minutes over a two week period of time.
Who can participate?
This program is designed to benefit any organizational group, such as schools, individual classrooms, clubs, preschools, church groups, home school groups, charities, and public libraries.
How does the program work?
Parents and children ask friends, family, people they know (NO door-to-door) to sponsor their reading time by pledging a flat amount.
How do the kids benefit?
They develop the important habit of daily reading and receive Usborne books and other prizes for participating. The Reach For The Stars program helps children discover the joy of reading and gives them the opportunity to choose their very own high quality Usborne books to keep!
How can your school benefit?
Reach for the Stars has a flexible option to meet your needs - books for the library and classrooms, cash for your school budget, or a combination of both. 100% of the pledges collected are returned to the students and school in books or cash.
The program is easy, and easily adjusted to fit your needs!
