I was passed on this information and thought it sounded like fun to share with you all too! This is the first I've heard of this reading program.

Calling all children, parents, and teachers – grab your books and PJs because the nation’s largest annual bedtime story event, America’s Biggest Bedtime Story, is back by popular demand for the third year.

Participate for a good cause!
During this year’s America’s Biggest Bedtime Story event, the BOOK IT! Program is challenging readers to break the 2009 attendance record of 198,000 people to support a good cause.
If more people participate in 2010 than in 2009, the BOOK IT! Program will donate 50,000 meals to Haiti through the World Food Program, in our continued effort to encourage reading while supporting an imperative cause.
Be sure to check out the BOOK IT! website for great reading tips for parents and teachers too. Also, don't forget some munchies! Yes, they have a recipe page for readers too!
So please tune in and listen to a story! I can't wait for this! My little kids especially, are going to get a kick out of story time on the 'puter! =)
