About 100 Days of Reading

All summer long, we’ll share tips and activities to help keep kids reading, active and learning. Meanwhile, every action you take – every tap, every click – will help unlock books, educational materials and healthy food to feed the minds and bellies of 750,000 kids in rural America who are falling behind. New activities are added every week!
