This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor #366: Jackie!
As you know, our family loves to read. So whenever I hear about a program that encourages literacy while having fun, I’m all for it. This is definitely the case for Pizza Hut’s BOOK IT! Program.
DESCRIPTION: BOOK IT! motivates children K- 6th grade to read by rewarding their reading accomplishments with praise, recognition and pizza via their schools.Â BOOK IT! is simple for the teacher to use, flexible because goals match reading ability, and fun because achieving a goal is a great reason to celebrate.Â BOOK IT! was created in 1985 and currently reaches over 10 million students annually.
On Feb 8th, Pizza Hut hosted their 3rd annual bedtime story event, Americaâ€™s Biggest Bedtime Story. By beating their goal of 197,972 viewers, BOOK IT! has donated funds for 50,000 meals to Haiti Relief through the World Food Programme.
But it doesn’t have to end there. If you missed the webcast, you can still view the “Carnival of Animals” as narrated by John Lithgow. I’ve always been a big fan of Lithgow and we really enjoyed his distinctive voice as he read this very entertaining book. The best part is that if your children love the story (as I know they will) you can play the video over and over again. Personally, we watched it 3 times! It was a great way to share this bedtime story with my girls and it also gave me a break from reading for one evening and I could just sit back and enjoy the show.
As a bonus, they also have a reading of “I Got Two Dogs”, the 2009 archive webcast also read by Lithgow.
So grab some pizza, sit back, and enjoy the “Carnival of Animals”!
