Summer Reading Challenge: Weeks 4 & 5 recap

It's been over a full month since the 2017 Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge launched and kids are reading up a storm! As of today at 10:40 am, kids have logged over 51 MILLION reading minutes! 

Let's check out some other highlights from the past two weeks.

The Summer Reading Road Trip RV was at BookCon in New York City! Parked inside the Javits Center at Family HQ, kids could spin a prize wheel, play games, meet their favorite characters, and more! 

The Summer Reading Road Trip's stop at Alfred J. Gomes Elementary School in New Bedford, MA was featured right here on the blog! Get a sneak peek here, and check out some tweets from the event:

(The RV & Summer Reading Road Trip is now on hiatus until July.)

A number of Reading Ambassadors held events in local schools, including First Lady Valerie Sununu (New Hampshire), First Gentleman Dan Little (Oregon), First Lady Tonette Walker (Wisconsin), and First Lady Linda Daugaard (South Dakota).
