One 2 Read

About One 2 Read

One 2 Read models itself after Colorado’s “One Book.”  One 2 Read gives a copy of the same book to second graders in the Cedar Rapids, College Community, Linn-Mar, and Marion school districts.  In addition, One 2 Read plans author performances and community events to engage children of all ages in fun activities and conversations about the joy of reading.  One 2 Read aims to bring the joy of reading alive for students, parents, and community members to help students achieve grade level reading.

To join in the planning for One 2 Read 2020, contact us at [email protected].

All second grade students in the metro school districts and parochial schools will receive a copy of Bad Kitty Gets a Bath containing a special message from author, Nick Bruel, about the magic of books and reading.
