Want to encourage reading at your house? Take the PTA Family Reading Challenge.
Simply register here and make time to read together as a family. Reading helps kids use their imagination, broaden their vocabulary, and think more critically.
To participate, capture your favorite moments through photos, videos, or other social media messages using the hashtag #FamiliesRead. Any content that relates to reading together as a family is perfect. Once you share on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, you'll be eligible to win prizes that include an Amazon Kindle gift card, an Amazon Kindle e-Reader, and a grand prize.
Check the website for more details per each challenge and good luck!
