Reading lovers are coming together to help us get books into the hands of kids who need them the most. Remember visiting Narnia, playing Jumanji, and eating Green Eggs and Ham? Books can have an incredible effect on children’s lives, yet there’s only one book for every 300 kids living in underserved communities in the U.S. So we’ve brought together some of our most beloved literary characters to help make this film and rally Book People for the cause. TAKE THE PLEDGE
Jumanji- Caldecott Winner A loved classic where the story of Judy and Peter's home becomes appallingly reorganized as they play the game of Jumanji. As they roll the dice, the events in the game come to life. With beautiful black and white pencil drawings, the illustrations of wild monkeys and rhinos appear as if they are coming to life. Elements of the art and written dialogue included in this story make it a great mentor text for students to analyze. Zathura is the sequel to Jumanji.
