U.S. Read for My School Campaign

The Pearson Foundation is excited to announce the 2013 Read for My School campaign sponsored by LeapFrog. The Read for My School campaign is a special We Give Books campaign that gives students and school communities the chance to earn books for their school libraries. We Give Books and LeapFrog will donate 150,000 new children’s books to public elementary schools across the country starting March 19 and continuing through April 5, 2013! As school librarians were instrumental in making the Pearson Foundation’s 2012 Read for My School campaign a success, the foundation is inviting AASL (in ALA) members to sign up early before the March 19 start date!

Campaign Details
For every book read on behalf of a school, that school will receive one new book, with the ability to earn a library of up to 250 brand new LeapFrog children’s books. (Schools must read 25 books to qualify.) After a school has earned the maximum number of books, or after the foundation has given out 150,000 books, readers can keep reading for the chance to receive a visit from the We Give Books ReadMobile!
