Andy Alligator's Book Drive to benefit Read Across America
NORMAN, OK (KOKH) Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. To encourage kids to read, Andy Alligator's is hosting their annual Children's Book Drive.
From March 2-4, 2018, the fun park and water park is offering an incentive for donating a new teen, pre-teen or children's book. When guests do so, they will receive a Winter Fun Pass ($19.99 value) for only $10. The Winter Fun Pass includes a $3 game card, plus unlimited laser tag, bumper cars, frog hopper, kids zone and rock wall.
All books donated will go to the Norman Boys and Girls Club and The Center for Children and Families.
Started by the National Education Association and now in its 21st year, Read Across America focuses on motivating children and teens to read. Research has shown that children who are motivated and spend more time reading for fun do better in school.
