KUED is once again inviting children pre-school through 6th grade to participate in the 18th Annual Reading Marathon from November 15 through December 6, 2010. The statewide challenge begins Monday, November 15 when public libraries and other community organizations host kick-off parties. At the parties, children will find the information they will need to participate. KUED hosts the annual marathon to encourage kids and their families to spend quality time reading. Participants may read alone, read to someone else or be read to by another person. Log your hours online or download the form and turn it into your local library. You can also pick up a form at your city or county library. (This is for Salt Lake County only). This is so fun. We have done this for the past few years, and my kids LOVE IT! They have tons of wonderful, fun and educational activiites. Lots of live entertainment. All of the characters (curious george, sid the science kid, etc in costume) for pictures. Free toys, and take home activites, and free lunch for the kids. They also give them a free book. And lots of other stuff I can't even remember. If you can, take advantage of this. The party will be in January.
