THIS BOOK IS COOL!


THIS BOOK IS COOL!

THIS BOOK IS COOL! promotes a love of reading by celebrating high-quality children's books.

Registration for the Suncoast Summer Reading Challenge is open! Any rising PreK or elementary school student from our 4-county region can join through participating summer providers. The Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading is also accepting registrations for *qualifying children, who will each receive twenty books for their home library!

To qualify for THIS BOOK IS COOL!, you must be:

  • a resident of Charlotte, DeSoto, Manatee, or Sarasota counties
  • entering PreK–3rd grade
  • enrolled at a Title I school, eligible for free/reduced lunch, or an asset-limited family that can demonstrate need

TBIC was created in response to the pandemic. Last year, 5,302 children participated; reading 94,383 books. Of the 5,302 students who participated in 2020, 73% HAD NO LEARNING LOSS during the summer. That's incredible!

We hope you will join us for another learning adventure in 2021!
