8 (More) Books to Get Caught Reading

It’s May again and that means it’s once again time to Get Caught Reading! You might remember last year’s list of awesome books to get caught reading, but if not, we’ve got them right here!

Since 1999, the Get Caught Reading initiative has sought to encourage reading among children by providing teachers and librarians with posters of well-known celebrities reading. A seemingly mundane idea, but when kids see their idols with a book in hand, the importance of reading is thoroughly reinforced.

So grab a book (pretty much any book!) and get caught reading in May! Or, if you’ve already gotten caught reading, maybe it’s time to help encourage the young reader in your life to become a young writer with Lulu Junior’s book making kits. Grab one today and help them fuel their creativity!
