States Read One Book

In this program, Read to Them rallies schools and districts across an entire state to read one book together at the same time. Participating states have recruited regional celebrity readers, featured Financial Literacy, and offered resources in Spanish to further enhance their reading programs. We have helped multiple states launch state-wide programs, including Mississippi, Virginia, Arkansas, Texas, Michigan, New York, and Florida. Let us know if you are interested in pursuing a state-wide program in your state by emailing us at

Every family in your community will read Judy Moody Was in a Mood by Megan McDonald each night.

Judy Moody awakes with a “ROAR!” on her first day of third grade. She is not excited about a new teacher, a new desk, or a new class pet. Quite frankly, she is not excited about any change in general.

But then her teacher, Mr. Todd, assigns a very special class project, and Judy has the chance to properly express her smart, spunky self! Over the course of this funny and touching book, Judy shows us that life is less about what happens and more about how we choose to “ROAR!” through it.
