Q-Kids Readers

  • slidebg1

Welcome to the Q-Kids Readers Book Club!

Would you like to see your name in lights? All you have to do is read, read, and read! When you reach one of the goals listed below, you will become a Q-Kids Reader and your name will be aired on WQLN-TV 54.1! Is that cool or what?

There is just one requirement

One of your books must be related to PBS. For example, you can read a book about Elmo, Arthur, or Martha Speaks. For our older readers, you might be inspired to read a book about ice glaciers after watching an episode of NOVA. Simply include this information in the e-mail. For our more advanced readers, 100 pages is equivalent to 1 book. For example, if you read 1500 pages, it will be counted as 15 books. Make sure one of your book selections is inspired by something you watched on WQLN-TV 54.1.

After you have read all of your books for the month, ask your mom, dad or guardian to contact Q-Kids Readers and include their name and address (to show that we have permission to air your name on WQLN-TV 54.1), your name, your age, and all of your book titles. You will immediately be enrolled in Q-Kids Readers! It's simple, free, and fun! Submit your book list by the 25th of the month, and your child's name will air for 30 days beginning the first week of the following month.

When submitting your child's book list each month, please include the child's name, the number of books read, the title of each book with the author's name, then submit your books list by 5 pm on the 25th of each month to Q-Kids Readers. Remember to highlight the PBS book within your book list.

According to the National Education Association, "Reading is the gateway to learning in all content areas and essential for achieving high standards."
