Help Children in need "Get Ready To Read"

I have been meaning to write about his for a week or so, but "Noggin" (Nickelodeon's prechool channel) has a fantastic promotion to help provide needy kids with free books! You can click on their link daily and for each click, their sponsors will provide free books to children!

Please click here daily and help children in need:

What is NOGGIN's Get Ready to Read Campaign?

Did you know that only 1 out of every 300 children from low-income families owns a book of their own? Or that there's a proven correlation between the number of books in a child's house and their ability to read and achieve academically? It's amazing that something as simple as a book can make such a big difference. Being the brand that "is like preschool on TV," NOGGIN believes it is important to support and build early literacy skill on our air and online.
What is NOGGIN Doing to Make a Difference?
NOGGIN has committed to generating 1,000,000 NEW books for kids in need. In partnership with First Book, we will use our TV network, our website and outreach to place NEW books into the hands of kids who need them most.
