Join for a good cause: During this year’s America’s Biggest Bedtime Story event, the BOOK IT! Program is challenging readers to break the 2009 attendance record of 198,000 people to support a good cause. If more people participate in 2010 than in 2009, the BOOK IT! Program will donate 50,000 meals to Haiti through the World Food Program, in our continued effort to encourage reading while supporting an imperative cause.

Host your own bedtime story party complete with pizza and stories!  I was provided with pizza gift cards and a book to continue the reading fun at my house and 1 lucky reader will be able to do the same.
