You’ve heard of gym teachers asking students to “drop and give me 20!” before.
Now, thanks to the Pizza Hut BOOK IT! Program, that pledge is being moved into the classroom. The Pizza Hut BOOK IT! Program, which is the longest running corporate literacy program in the country, is launching its “Give Me 20 Challenge.” (No pushups required!)
The Give Me 20 Challenge is designed to get kids to commit to read 20 minutes a day, for eight weeks. Families and classrooms that meet the eight-week challenge can enter for a chance to win one of fifty The Very Hungry Caterpillar prize packages.
Why take the challenge?
Children who read themselves and are read to on a regular basis show more interest in books, have a higher vocabulary, and learn to read more easily...and just 20 minutes a day is all it takes.

I love this concept. My 4 year old has a huge book collection and loves tp read, especially if it's a Mickey Mouse book. However, getting my 11 and 13 year olds to read is like pulling teeth! They hate reading so anything that will benefit them and help get them to learn to love reading is a huge plus in my book!
One Lucky TCMS reader will win a $10 Pizza Hut Giftcard and a copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Simply answer the question below before 3/31/13 for your chance to win .
