A Look Back at Virginia Reads One Book 2018!

April 10, 2018

The first annual Virginia Reads One Book kicked off in February this year with students, families, and staff reading The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies! Almost 40,000 students in 41 districts were involved all across the state from Arlington to Blue Ridge to Portsmouth!

Books are delivered by bike to students at Newsome Park Elementary School in Newport News.

Jesse and Evan’s story connected classmates, teachers, bus drivers, custodians, siblings, and families at 92 schools!

Students perform a lemonade stand skit at the Economic Fair in Newport News.

Students put on skits, made music videos, created artwork, hosted family nights, made t-shirts, and of course drank lemonade! You can watch the slideshow of Virginia Reads One Book on our Family Financial Literacy page.

Students read together in Prince William county.

We can’t wait for Virginia Reads One Book 2019.  Please visit our website page if you are interested!
