Reading Without Walls

Reading Without Walls

We challenge you! Scrawl Books is joining The ABC Children’s Group at ABA, the Children’s Book Council, Every Child a Reader, the Library of Congress, and Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group for a summer reading initiative that centers on Reading Without Walls, a nationwide program started by National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Gene Luen Yang to celebrate reading and diversity.

Reading Without Walls challenges readers of all ages to:

  • Read a book about a character who doesn’t look like you or live like you.
  • Read a book about a topic you don’t know much about.
  • Read a book in a format that you don’t normally read for fun.

 Stop in and pick up a bingo card. Fill in a row for bookmarks & buttons, fill in the board and get a $5 gift card!
