We’re Making Summer Better with Books

During 100 Days of Reading, we’re stuffing a bus full of books, backpacks and school supplies and touring the U.S.!

Together, We Made Summer Better with Books

In 2022, Save the Children reimagined our summer reading campaign – 100 Days of Reading – to remind everyone that Summer’s Better with Books! Together with our partners, we traveled 14,250 miles across America, reaching 43,000 kids and parents at 25 live events. We distributed more than 25,000 backpacks and 1 million items – like books, school supplies, healthy snacks and more! Watch the video to see how Summer’s Better with Books!
