Book Trust is excited to kick-off the 2015-2016 school year with a Colorado-based scavenger hunt! For 10 straight days, Book Trust will be popping up at some favorite family spots in Denver and Fort Collins. Photo hints of the locations will be posted each morning or early afternoon on Book Trust’s Instagram page. The first ten people to arrive at the daily Book Trust stop will receive a free book!
Following the scavenger hunt is a great way to get your kids excited about reading new books this fall. Have your children play book detective by asking them where they think the location hint is leading them to each day. The daily book choice will also provide an additional hint. Once you arrive at the surprise site, snap a picture and share it on Instagram and/or Facebook by tagging @Book_Trust or using #booktrust.
This scavenger hunt is an incredible way to show children how exciting reading can be. Inspiring children to fall in love with reading is Book Trust’s core mission. Studies show that there is 1 book for every 300 children in low-income communities. Book Trust is working to close this book gap. Every month, Book Trust students choose and order their own books through Scholastic Reading Club flyers. At the end of the school year, each Book Trust student has a home library of up to 30 books because of Book Trust.
Help spread the excitement and love of reading by joining Book Trust 10! For just $10 a month, you can ensure a child will become a reader for life. Your gift will enable one child to build a personal library of up to 30 books this school year. Visit our donate page to learn more about how to become a hero every month.
Now, time to start getting your children excited and pumped for Book Trust’s 10 days to fall in love with reading scavenger hunt! The scavenger hunt begins this Sunday, September 13th, with our first Instagram photo hint! Some of the secret locations will include butterflies, exotic animals, hilarious performances, beautiful messes, and educational entertainment-just to name a few. Happy reading!
