JWB's Read Strong
The READ STRONG song and video encourages kids to read or to visit the myON website where Pinellas children have access to thousands of free digital books at their fingertips. There is also a Summer Reading Challenge where kids can win cool prizes on myON’s website: www.readonmyon.com
The project is a collaboration between JWB, myON, ReadStrong Pinellas (R’Club Child Care), and Tampa Bay Rap Artist Corey Thornton, who uses catchy beats and memorable lyrics to inspire, motivate, and educate our next generation through music. Promoting summer learning/summer reading is one strategy of the Early Readers, Future Leaders: Pinellas Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, led by JWB and supported by dozens of Pinellas County partners. For reading tips and other children’s literacy resources, visit www.read-strong.org. To learn more about the Pinellas Grade-Level Reading Campaign, visit www.jwbpinellas.org/grade-level-reading.
