Celebrate the Get Caught Reading Campaign with Dinosaur Train's Guess Who, Buddy Children's Book Giveaway

We love watching Dinosaur Train on PBS and this year Dinosaur Train's very own character, Buddy, is helping us celebrate the 2nd Annual Association of American Publishers Get Caught Reading campaign! This special campaign is to remind people of all ages just how fun it is to read! The  Jim Henson Company has teamed up with Reader's Digest Children's Publishing to give away their latest book, Guess Who, Buddy!

About the Book!

In Guess Who Buddy!, “What’s that dinosaur?” is the question Buddy needs to answer as he plays a guessing game with his friends. Kids can play along with Buddy by reading the playful descriptive text for each hidden character, guessing the dinosaur, then lifting the flap to see if they are right!  A surprise pop-up at the end of the story adds to the charm of this fun book. SRP $10.99. Ages 2 and up.

Help others to “Get Caught Reading” too with a local book drive!

According to United We Serve, a nationwide service initiative that helps meet growing social needs resulting from the economic downturn, 80% of preschool and after-school programs serving low-income populations have no age-appropriate books for their children. A recent study shows that while in middle-income neighborhoods the ratio of age-appropriate books per child is 13 to 1, in low-income neighborhoods the ratio is 1 for every 300 children.

The most successful way to improve the reading achievement of low-income children is to increase their access to print. Communities ranking high in achievement tests have several factors in common: an abundance of books in public libraries, easy access to books in the community at large and a large number of textbooks per student.

You can also check Donation Town, an online directory of charities that offer donation pick up services.

Now that you've read a little about the importance of reading, it's time for an awesome giveaway courtesy of the Get Caught Reading campaign! 
One Lucky Children Teaching Mama Reader Will Win the newest Dinosaur Train book, Guess Who, Buddy!
