Here’s a great opportunity to help a child need, and all you have to do is share the name of your favorite children’s book.

Soar With Reading, a collaborative effort by JetBlue and PBS Kids, is an award-winning program designed to  excite and inspire kids’ imaginations to take flight through reading. 

Unfortunately, too many children don’t have access to resources that enrich learning and encourage reading. A recent study shows that there is only one age-appropriate book available for every 300 children living in underserved communities in the United States. 

Because JetBlue and PBS Kids understand this problem, together they have launched a new grant program called Soar With Reading, which is designed to provide books directly to the children who need them most. 

Simply share the name of your favorite children’s book, and for every submission, JetBlue will donate an age-appropriate book to a child in need through their partner Barefoot Books.  Just click here to visit their website and make your submission.  In doing so, you’ll be helping Soar With Reading reach their goal of donating $200,000 worth of books to children in need.  It’s quick and so easy!

Teachers and parents, this webiste also offers some really great literacy based games and activities for young readers.  Check them out!
