We Give Books ReadMobile Tour Hits the Road

Just in time for the beginning of school, the We Give Books ReadMobile tour is setting out to share the love of reading and power of giving with students across the United States.

ReadMobile teams are heading East and West to emphasize the importance of reading early and often. During reading celebrations, the ReadMobile will deliver new children books to schools in need, and feature stories from the New York Times-bestselling Ladybug Girl books series. One of the books in the series, Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad is the official book of Jumpstart's Read for the Record this year and will be the focus of the ReadMobile's activities in classrooms as they prepare to participate in Jumpstart's Read for the Record on October 4.

This year, you can win a We Give Books Celebration and have the ReadMobile visit your community by joining the East vs. West Twitter battle. Show your support for your coast by posting on Twitter: Using the hashtag #ReadMobileEast or #ReadMobileWest, you can tell us what's happening at the ReadMobile event in your community and post twitpics. Each week We Give Books will tally the number of tweets for each location, and at the end of the tour an overall winner will receive a special visit from the ReadMobile and a Grand Prize Reading Celebration.
