8 Books to Get Caught Reading In 2020 With Lulu Junior
Get Caught Reading is an amazing organization that aims to encourage everyone, everywhere to read more. Leaning on research that has for many years suggested that reading as a child stimulates our brains and helps us get ahead in our education, Get Caught Reading takes a unique approach to encourage reading.
What they do is ask celebrities from athletes to lawmakers and more to snap a picture of themselves reading. Those pictures go up on Get Caught Reading's website for everyone to see. They also provide resources for parents and educators to encourage reading and offer poster sized prints of celebrity readers.
In the spirit of support Get Caught Reading, we bring you our annual list of amazing books to get caught reading this spring!
