Frequently Asked Questions

How does Reach for the Stars work?


Reach for the Stars is a pledge-based reading incentive program where the children who participate read or are read to for 30 minutes a day for two weeks, tracking it all on a provided reading log. Students are able to collect pledges for reaching their reading goal and 100% of the pledges collected will provide books for either the school or the student 5participating. The most common allocation arrangement is a 50/30 split: 50% of pledges providing the child with personal books to take home and 50% providing the school or classrooms with books. We have a cash back option for the school as well!
