Video: Be a Reading Superhero

Scholastic is gearing up for their Summer Reading Challenge which begins on May 9th. In this video, Captain Underpants author and Scholastic Summer Reading Global Ambassador Dav Pilkey has a special message for kids about summer reading.

Scholastic is also launching a traveling Summer Reading Road Trip that will bring family reading festivals to kids and families across 20 U.S cities, beginning May 2, 2016 and running through July 31, 2016.

And finally, starting today through April 11, 2016, teachers can enter the Dav Pilkey ‘Be a Reading Superhero’ Educator Contest for a chance to win a free summer reading book for every child in their school. One school in each U.S. state, territory and in the District of Columbia will be selected to win an array of popular, age-appropriate Scholastic titles. Here’s the link for the online entry form to share with your educators.

And if you’d like to embed the video on your website or in your newsletter, here’s the code:
