Reading Challenge

The LSU AgCenter’s 4-H Partnership programs creatively work to spark children’s interest in reading and books as part of our Reading to the Heart youth literacy initiative.

to the HEART is a program that brings children and youth together with family and friends to encourage participation in reading activities to build literacy skills. The main focus of Reading to the HEART is a two-week reading challenge.

During the reading challenge, youth may read on their own or with family or friends. Listening to someone else read -- in any language -- or reading to someone else also counts toward the total minutes children read books, newspaper or magazine articles, comic books, newsletters or other materials. Participants keep track of the materials they read at home and submit the reading log to receive a mini poster highlighting their accomplishments.
