Books for kids with Reading Rock Stars!
One of the major predictors of academic success is the amount of books in the home. In middle-income neighborhoods, there are 13 books for every one child. In low-income neighborhoods there is one book for every 300 children. This is a statistic we can each do something about.
Reading Rock Stars brings nationally recognized authors into Title I Schools to present on their books and get kids excited about reading. The Texas Book Festival gives each child their very own book--signed by the author that they met-- to start building their own personal library. In many cases, this book is the child's first book and one of the only books in their home.
As the Outreach Coordinator, it is my job to make Reading Rock Stars happen! I recruit the authors, order all the books, and work with teachers across Texas to create activities to get the students excited to read and meet the authors. I work hard to find the most diverse stories and authors so that students will see themselves not only in the books, but also in their visiting author's personal story.
