This summer, iVillage is teaming up again with PBS KIDS to help keep kids reading and prevent the summer slide. Our Summer Reading Community Challenge – coached by Super WHY! creator Angela C. Santomero – begins June 6. The Community Challenge will be even more fun this year, with guest coaches and interviews, free downloads and a chance to win daily prizes!
To help spread the word, we’d like to hold home reading parties during the Challenge sign-up period in May and early June. The first 25 iVillagers to sign up to host a party in their home will receive a kit full of reading goodies and ideas from iVillage and PBS. We can also put you in touch with local children’s authors who might be interested in attending.
To request a reading party kit, please email us with the following information below. Note: if we have enough requests, we may also be able to get Challenge materials for your local libraries. Please email us at
