The Power of Readingdownload sample

Reading is key to a child’s potential for success in life. And the more kids read, the more they succeed. In third grade students make the leap from ‘learning to read’ to ‘reading to learn.’ But too many students fall behind and struggle, and some never catch up.

Awaken the Magic of Reading

To read, kids need topics they’re interested in presented in a way that entices them to read. That’s where Kid Scoop News, a non-profit to get kids reading more, comes in.

Each month we distribute a reader, called Kid Scoop News, to select Bay Area classrooms. Each issue ‘wraps’ favorite topics like sports, pets and science in activities such as word searches, drawing and puzzles kids really love. That’s the magic!

Equal Opportunity for All Kids

Unlike digital devices, with Kid Scoop News, students get their own personal copy to hold and read, write in, cut up and take home. Sometimes it’s the only reading material they have.

Kid Scoop News is free to deserving kids because it’s paid for by sponsors. So please consider sponsoring a child, a classroom or a school and give more kids a chance to succeed.

What People Are Saying

“They love it because it still looks fun with all the color and activities to do, but it is engaging them in reading nonfiction which is so hard to do!”

Teacher Survey

Each year we ask teachers to complete a survey to gauge how well we achieve our goal of getting kids to read more for fun and to increase access to reading materials at home. See the rest of the results of our 2017 survey.

Our Vision

At our literacy-for-all non-profit organization, we have a vision—a vision for kids, the kids with whom we share our community and our future, have the same opportunity to succeed in school and in life as we did.

Kid Scoop News recognized with a Tier 3 placement in Sonoma County’s Portfolio of Model Upstream Programs
