Top British authors will be read as part of the new Read for My School program in Britain. Aimed at 9-11 year olds, the program will run the first quarter of 2013. The project is designed to encourage reading for pleasure with 100,000 free books being donated by the Pearson Foundation. Additionally, almost half of the 90 titles on the reading list will be available to read online at no cost.
The 90 books are broken into themes that include Historical Hits, It’s a Mystery, Keep It Real, Laugh Out Loud, Out of the This World, Stars of the Screen, Thrill Seekers, and Wild Thing. The books are a mix of new and old, popular and classics. Visit the official site for more information.
