It’s officially summertime for many children and what a great time to foster a love of reading. I am not sure if I have mentioned it, but I am a school librarian and what I am about to discuss is very near and dear to my heart. Reading is one skill that can be so much fun. Think about it adventure, comedy, graphic novels and much more can foster imagination and creativity in a child.
This month, YouTubeKids has partnered with a host of content creators for their global #ReadAlong Campaign.
- Universal’s “The Minions”
- Bob the Train
- ChuChu TV
- Top publishers such as HarperCollins, Penguin Random House (Brightly Kids YouTube Channel), Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and National Geographic Kids.
The campaign will be global and reach the United States, Australia, Canada, Ghana, India, Ireland, Jamaica, Kenya, Malaysia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, United Kingdom, and Zimbabwe.
Take a look at just one of the many playlists and digital content created just to help kids develop a love of reading. The Minions (yes, they love to read too):
Enjoy the summer and don’t forget to #ReadAlongwith YouTube Kids!
Until Next Time!
