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, and Florida. Let us know if you are interested in pursuing a state-wide program in your state by emailing us at
