Arrrgh Mighty Day
Tuesday November 19th
On Tuesday November 19th we celebrate the release of Penelope the Pirate Princess: The Search for the Magical Moon Pearl, the new book by Empowered Readers 7-year old founder, Selah Thompson! Join the Arrrgh Mighty Day festivities and signup to volunteer to read to a classroom as part of National Family Literacy week. Help us spread the Excitement of Reading by taking children on an immersive literacy adventure that goes beyond the book!
EVERY KID DESERVES TO READ
Empowered Readers is a non-profit dreamed up by a 5-year-old little girl who set out to tackle illiteracy by helping families build strong reading rituals and by getting kids excited about reading.
”Reading is the gateway skill that makes all
other learning possible."
