We love to share opportunities for family fun and education. Reading is a way your children and cultivate a relationship with their imagination. This summer we are excited to announce to the Black Family Fun crew that Get Georgia Reading and myON are delivering more than 8,000 books to your computer and mobile devices that you can access 24 hours a day, every day through Aug. 30. It’s like having your own personal library right at your fingertips.
Hey, parents, teachers, and librarians, we want you to join the fun, too.
You can search from more than 50 different categories and genres, fiction and nonfiction books, picture books, graphic novels, chapter books, titles for struggling and reluctant readers, and Spanish and bilingual titles.
What’s popular so far this year? It looks like Georgia kids favor nonfiction. The top titles are:
- Scary Ghosts,
- Great White Sharks: On the Hunt,
- King of Pop: The Story of Michael Jackson
- Anacondas: On the Hunt.
During summer 2014, Georgians read 3,246 books and spent 845 hours and 11 minutes reading. This year, we’ve already read 8,198 books and spent 1,727 hours reading, and summer break hasn’t even started.
