#OneBookConnects

 

Greetings from the Nichols Reading Team!

May 6, 2020

It certainly has been a trying time these past 7 weeks but I hope that reading A Boy Called Bat helped ease the tension and uncertainty in your homes.  Many families that participated in our first #OneBookConnects have shared such positive feedback.  The time away from the computer screen snuggled up together was priceless!  We want to continue with that momentum and host another #OneBookConnects.  Are you up for the challenge?

As with the previous book, we will use funds raised from our Read-a-Thon to participate, so it will be FREE to you!  Each family that registers will receive:

  • Hard copies of book Rump:  The (Fairly) True Story of Rumpelstiltskin

  • Live video recordings of each chapter read by Read to Them staff, available for you to follow along at home via @readtothem on Instagram and Facebook

  • A Family Resources Packet that includes daily activities, STEM activities, trivia questions, and discussion questions

  • Access to a nationwide contest “packet” that promotes fun, interactive learning and creativity both in the home and online through special activities and a points system

  • A chance to win one of two grand prizes from our sponsors

  • Support from Read to Them staff

Please note:  We will only be purchasing books for families that register using the link below in order not to waste funds.  We need final counts by Wednesday, May 13, 2020, so please register immediately.  Encourage your Nichols friends to sign up as well!  We will contact families when the materials come in and arrange distribution.  The program is scheduled to begin on June 1st.

We hope this message reaches all of our Nichols families in good health during this difficult time.  We miss each one of you dearly and are saddened that our One School One Book and Read-a-Thon were abruptly ended.  In addition, we will not be able to have our annual family reading night that we traditionally have in the spring. But...there is good news!  Read to Them, the website that brings us One School One Book, has created an amazing project -- #OneBookConnects.  We’d love for EVERY family to participate in this program!!

We will use funds raised from our Read-a-Thon to participate, so it will be FREE to you!  Each family that registers will receive:
