This week we’re celebrating the launch of our new book Now You’re Thinking! with a huge charitable event to support children’s literacy, critical thinking, and 3 phenomenal nonprofit organizations. Last week, Critical-Thinkers wrote a post about how reading to your children is one of the most important ways to help them build critical thinking skills. We agree and are committed to supporting the families of our soldiers.
Our goal is to give away 30,000 children’s books to military charities, and we need your help!
From September 12 through September 30, each time you read a free online children’s book at http://wegivebooks.org/nyt your efforts will help give a free hardcover or paperback book to one of three great nonprofits that support U.S. military families year round (Pat Tillman Foundation, The Mission Continues, and United Through Reading).
Here’s how to participate!
1. Visit the Now You’re Thinking! campaign at We Give Books between September 12 and September 30.
2. Log in either through Facebook or Sign Up with a new free account.
3. Choose a book to read online. There are several books to choose from for various ages and interests.
4) After reading the book online to your child, choose “Give Book” and then We Give Books and Now You’re Thinking! will donate a hardback or paperback book on your behalf to either United Through Reading, The Pat Tillman Foundation, or The Mission Continues.
Together, we can celebrate the direct link between critical thinking and success and be catalysts in a movement that encourages healthy and productive ways of thought all over the world.
Will you pledge to read a free online book to help support the literacy of military children across the United States?
